    Part 1

    Step 1: Join 2 white 8"squares and 2 dark squares to make a 4 patch as in photo.

    Step 2: Fold block in half with right sides together. Machine stitch along short edges.

    Step 3: Bring the stitched sides together as in photo making sure the centre seams match.

    Step 4: Stitch this seam leaving an opening of 3" to 4" for turning. Trim 4 corners.

    Step 5:Turn the block inside out through the opening. Push the corners out and press. Measure the block from edge to edge. Mine is 10 1/2". This is the size of the batting.

    Step 6: Carefully insert the folded batting square through the opening. A pencil should help smooth out the batting making sure it goes to the edges. Stitch the opening closed.

    Step 7: Hand or machine quilt the square with lines that are parallel to the seams of the triangle. I use 1" masking tape as a guide. Do a few squares.

    Step 8: Lay out your squares rotating blocks so that a white
    triangle touches a dark triangle. Whip stitch two blocks together.

    You do not have to use white/cream fabric. You can use up your scraps using darks and lights.

    That is my question to how do you attach them together. I love quilt as you go no tugging the other way.
