Corner Squares

This week another technique is used to add a triangle of one fabric to one corner of a square. It is sometimes referred to as stitch and flip. The trick to having a unit that finishes square is to sew the line close to but not directly on the drawn line. I think of it like writing your name on a lined piece of paper - try to make your line rest just slightly above the drawn line. This helps your unit finish square as there is tiny bit of the fabric from the added triangle taken up in the seam when it is ironed.

Until you get the hang of where to sew the line, simply fold back the triangle before ironing to see if it will lay square with the remaining background fabric. With practice you will find the right place to stitch and it will become second nature.

Especially when you stitch all the Fabric A and Fabric B corner squares!

My something Dazzling this week in my sewing space is this turquoise Aurifil thread that matches so well with my Allison Glass print I'm using as Fabric B. 

Week 5 To Dos

~ Make all of the Corner Square units with both Fabric A and Fabric B.
~ Following the pressing directions in the pattern to help your units lay flat.
~ Keep your unit parts flat and organized for another week

I hope you are enjoying these weekly posts! You can work ahead but also, take your time. I imagine you are working at several projects at once; and if you don't have much time in a week to sew, doing a few corner squares each night will get your units finished too.

With Joy,

Sarah V.
