Buzz Buzz - 5

Block done and post ready - all in the correct month this time!

Here's my July block for Claire E Poppins:

It was featured in issue 6 of Love Patchwork and Quilting.  It includes corner blocks involving sewing triangles to square pieces to create a square within a square.

After a LOT of head scratching as to how to ensure all my points matched up to create perfect squares within squares, I finally realised that it was easier if I ironed them in half to ascertain the halfway point of both the triangles and the square.

This probably isn't news to most of you, but I was mighty please with myself when I stumbled across that solution!

Now received!  Enjoy what is shaping up to be a gorgeous quilt Ms. Poppins.
