    Not too dumb. I always thought turnovers were something from Pepperidge Farm that you baked for dessert.

    LOL .... were a little confused there for a minute !! Yum :-D

    Do you cut a 6 inch strip then cut to 6 inch blocks or do you need fewer than this, or are you fussy cutting??

    Interesting question! If the two sides are 6 inches, then you would use a 6 inch strip and squares. I have never purchased any, so I am not sure.

    It depends :wink:
    If you are sewing two turnovers together ( half sq triangle block), you will lose a 1/2 inch (seam allowances), so if you were to sew that to a square that is 6" the square would be too big.

    I'm pretty sure turnovers are 6" squares cut in half. Which, now that I think about it, would sew up to an odd size.

    My package of turnovers says "sew 2 together to make a 5" square".

    I've been collecting them when Missouri Quilt puts them on the daily special.

    I love the pre cuts. I use turnovers to make pinwheel blocks.

    I just made the quilt from the Missouri Star you tube and I bought the turnovers and then cut 6 inch squares in half for the background. Quick and easy quilt.
