    Thanks, Just helping a fellow quilter make a block that she was confused about. I thought it would be easier to do it this way than send photos via email, which would each have to be opened, downloaded, etc.

    Also can do it this way - I hate working with triangles and try to make as few as possible.

    I just make the Square in Square center slightly larger than needed and trim down. By cutting the triangles as shown, your finished corner has no bias edge.

    This is probably a dumb question, but is there a way to determine what size to cut the larger square so that when you cut it on the diagonal, it fits the smaller square. For instance, if you are working with a 3-1/2 inch square, what size would you cut the other square so that the half squares would be the right size?
