I have often said that I don’t mind squaring up blocks. This is still true, but I think it’s more accurate to say I don’t mind it because I like working with perfectly square blocks.
My current project is one of those where you lay a smaller square over a larger square’s corner, sew across the bias & trim off the 2 corners. (example here). So, I decided to go ahead & sew up those pieces as I pieced the top into 1/2 square triangles. A border maybe?
Here’s the stack
I decided to see if I could save time & all the little fuzz and use the Value Die with the GO! cutter to square them up. I marked the die shapes & then marked the bias lines with a sharpie
Then I placed one of my pieces so that the corner of the sewn line lined up with my diagonal drawn line
Pressing my luck, I thought, let’s go for 2! I lined up the 2nd square on top of the first, but changed the direction of the sewn line. I can see now that I am just th slightest bit off the drawn line in the top right corner, but I’ll survive :)
Rolled them through & wah-lah!
ah, squaring up was never easier! now, just a jillion more to do…
