I’m having fun working on an applique quilt that has a background of 4-patches set on point. I’ve made all of the square blocks, now I just need to make the triangle-shaped pieces that go on the outer edges of the quilt.
The instructions say to cut 2 triangles and sew them onto a square to make a larger triangle shape for the edges. I need 12 of these. My question is, can’t I just make 6 extra blocks and cut them in half diagonally? It seems to me it would be easier and faster, not to mention minimizing my interaction with bias-cut edges. I feel like I’m missing something here….
