I thought you may like to see how the block (called Mary's Triangle block) is made.
Take your scrap fabric and cut a
3 1/2 " square piece.
Take your joining fabric (the aqua) and cut a
3 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangle.
Sew right sides together at short edge of rectangle.
Make another pair.
It doesn't matter if the scrap pieces match, they will end up in different blocks.
with scrap pieces at either ends, like so:
(Not Through the seam)
Make sure it does not match the other smaller scrap pieces.
going just through the corner seam of the Right hand scrap block
(see near the 5 3/4 mark on the ruler)
rule the line all the way from the Top Left Corner of the block,
just past the top most seam corner to the other side of the block,
1" from the bottom of the block.
just through the bottom left corner of the seam and up to the other side,
1" from the top of the block.
the two blocks should measure exactly, pin and sew along the lines.
this will give you beautiful finished points!
