This week I was testing a block for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks’ next edition and the block made 3x6” Flying Geese units with the cutaway corners (tute here), leaving me nice big scraps of triangles. I immediately ran those back through to make half square triangle units. I knew they would square up to 2.5”, and the did!
I decided to make up a block right then instead of toss them in the scrap bin.
I only had to make 4 additional half square units and cut the border strips. Wa-lah, a 12” block!
