    I've been looking for this calculation for months! I knew the basic steps but never could settle on the correct formula to fit any quilt. Thanks so much for sharing.

    What a neat way to do these...I usually just do the "making two at a time" method...but I'll definitely try this. Thanks!

    Thank you so much! I have been doing the four at a time but have a heck of a time trying to keep them from stretching! I look forward to trying this method.

    This is exactly the method I use. Comes out perfect everytime. No dealing with fancy papers, bias edges, etc.

    Thanks for sharing. I just looked at this for the second time. Read it once...went a couple of topics down and saw where the poster forgot to bookmark something she was sure she'd be able to find easily later on...came back and bookmarked this puppy!! Always looking for a quick easy was to do these.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I am always looking for ways to cut down on time spent doing these and without the bias edge is out standing.

    You may not like them, but you'll get them done in a 1/4 of the time, so you'll (hopefully) dislike them less :D

    This method was just demonstrated today on Fons and Porter on my PBS channel. Great technique.
