Spilt Quarter-Square Triangles (SQST)
For this week’s Aiming for Accuracy lesson, I’ll refer you to the Spilt Quarter-Square Triangle tutorial that I’ve created.
While you could cut your fabrics on the bias to create the segments used to complete this week’s pinwheel blocks, I strongly believe that it’s easier far more accurate to start with oversized squares and trim the segments to the desired size for assembly into the quilt block.
