CUT 2.5” squares. See directions below to prepare the pieced square. There will be a demo in class if you want to wait.
For the pieced squares: Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the small square. With right sides together, place the small square in the top corner of the large square. Stitch along the diagonal line using a slightly tighter stitch length. Trim the extra fabric, leaving a ¼” seam allowance.
