    Do you sew all the way to the end of each side or stop at 1/4 inch and turn and go up the next side? I can't tell from the picture.

    I do both Sherri. Whatever strikes my fancy, but I usually stop 1/4 inch from the edge and turn the fabric, but it really doesn't make any difference. Have fun making the half square triangle.

    How neat! Do you suggest the starching before sewing the edges or just before the cutting?
    Thank you for posting this.

    I do not starch before cutting or sewing, but i do starch after I make the half sq. triangles. I should say "sizing" instead of starch. I use sizing on all my pieced blocks.

    I use starch while the fabric is still uncut, that is to say, before there are any cut bias edges.
    When I try to starch or steam AFTER the bias edges are cut, they always become unsquared and out of true.
