Default Question for Accuquilt users---Square-in-Square

For Accuquilt users: Is there a particular die to make the traditional Square-in-Square block?

I think you would just use one of the strip dies. I don't know of any other way.

There is a 6" finished Snowball die.

Yes and no. They call the block a "square on point". Here's the link to the sizes available.

The problem is that you still need the corresponding HST die to complete the patch. They don't tell you which size HST die you need, or what the finished size of the SIS patch is. The only place I could find the info is to go the page for that specific die, then watch the video. For instance, the GO! #55106 Square on Point-3 11/16" (3 3/16" Finished)
needs the 2.25 HST, yielding a 4.5" patch

OOh, just missed the editing window...
Actually, you can use the same calculation that you use to calculate the size for setting triangles. So multiply the finished size of the square, 3 3.16 in this case (3.1875) by 1.414 which gives you 4.5". Half of that would be the FINISHED HST size you need, 2 1/4 in the example, which is what they said in the video.
