    All you do is make half square triangles and squares I made mine four inch and follow the pattern. Half of the strip is half square triangle and the other half is a square.

    My biggest dilemma is when I cut and sew two to make s triangle of course it never comes out the same size as the square….

    So at high it never says it in my directions should I just use the cut and sewn size as the finished size of the square?

    Is this just common sense or am I missing something?

    When I start out with say a 4″ square and cut in half
    Then sew triangles to make a square of course it is now less than 4″
    It then does not butt up to a solid 4″ square
    That’s what I’m trying to figure out
    So I make those squares I’m going to cut larger?
    Or do I make the solid pieces smaller ?
    I never see two different sizes in patterns

    Omgosh….are you saying you measure for each piece and you then cut with scissors? If you have not already purchased a cutting mat, sewing ruler and rotary cutter, you would improve your final results if you could do that. I know those items are not cheap but so worth it!!!!

    It does not mean you have to stick to triangles and squares. Try using squares and set circles on them. The use of colours is important.

    When making half square triangles add 7/8″ and for quarter square add 1 1/4″ and they will come out the right size.

I joined a Linus Q club here and we have a good time. All levels belong, long time quilters and us beginners too. We make simple little quilts 4 children in hospital, and some needy areas. Just once a month then we work on their projects in between
