I saw someone post about this a few days ago, they didn't have pictures and I couldn't understand, but this is clear, thanks so much for putting up the pictures, this is brilliant.

I have marked the corner to corner lines on the back of two fabrics in pencil. These blocks are 4.5” and when cut and resewn will make a block 3-3/4” square. Not sure of the math on how to make this without squaring it to 3.5” as I just grabbed squares out of the 4.5” squares.

The secret is in where you sew – The fabrics have been marked on the wrong side, in red for you to more easily see which side of the pencil line you put your ” seam. It isn’t necessary to mark your stitching line, you can just use your ” foot. I wanted make it clearly visible where you will stitch.

Put a light and dark together, and stitch as shown. Cut along the pencil line and press to the dark. Put two together , sew ” seam and press. And presto, no bias QST.
What size squares do you need to make the 4 1/2" qrtsq ?

The method to make them your way may be just what you're looking for. Some patterns want both kinds, so it's helpful to know both ways. Instead of moving to the other side of the drawn line, just continue on the same side. When they are cut apart you will have the two different quarter square triangles.
