I prefer the square sewn to the corner and the excess cut off. I know it wastes fabric, but it comes out so exact that way. I fold and press my diagonal rather than draw a line. I sew two threads off...

Was the fabric prewashed? I had that happen with a RJR fabric that had missed being prewashed. It shrunk enough to distort the block when I pressed it.

I don't use basting spray, but with my pins, I'd do the spiral first. If the fabric moves a bit, there's no place for it to go if the square is first.
I think I'd do a sample of each, then decide....

I went to the fabric store today and only bought the piece I went in for. Well, a little more - I told her 1 1/4 yards and she cut 1 1/2. I have a soft voice so it's reasonable. It was Northcutt...

I'm satisfied with my Sunbeam Mixmaster. I got my first one in the 60s and a replacement in the 90s. Not bad as I cooked for a family of seven, made wedding cakes and now make bread for a friend.

$14 a yard in the US? Wow! When I was at my LQS Tuesday, a batik I'd like for backgrounds was $12.99. It makes the good fabrics at $3.99 look good. Hopefully, they will sell out before I get the urge...
