|Block 28 - Cutting Corners
This week’s block comes straight from my Patchwork Corners mug rug pattern – it is Block 28 ‘Cutting Corners'.
|Patchwork Corners Mug Rug Pattern - two designs in one pattern
Very similar to Block 15 ‘Cornerstones’ this block has just one difference – instead of corner squares we have corner triangles. These are half-square-triangles which we make slightly bigger than needed and trim them down to size – just as we did way back when we made Block 2 ‘Guiding Star’ (click for the tutorial on trimming half-square-triangle units to size).
This block can be made with a square of pretty fabric for the centre ......

....... or you can fussy cut the centre square to frame a special message or picture. You don’t need any special equipment to fussy cut as shown in the tutorial here.

Block 28 'Cutting Corners' is another quick block from The Patchsmith’s Sampler Quilt Blocks pattern book leaving you plenty of time to share your blocks over on Instagram (#block28cuttingcorners) or in the Flickrgroup where you can post your block photos, meet and make friends or ask me a question.
