    but here is a tutorial anyway. I have been playing around in my scrap bin and found that if you cut three squares the same size and cut two of them on the bias you can make an easy square in a square block. This would be great for charm packs too. Basically you cut, sew, measure, and then cut again, sew again and so on and so forth. After the first block you only need two bias cut squares...If you use a rectangle you get a twirly block but be sure to cut with both rectangles face up or you won't be able to use two of them. rectangles are a bit over sized so you can trim back for accuracy. The pictures tell the story

    floating block comes from oversizing the triangles
