Allow extra fabric as needed for borders, backing and binding. If you want to go scrappy, use an assortment of bright fabrics instead of one color.

***There are other ways to quick-piece triangle square units. If you are sewing lots of identical units, you might want to try assembling them on a long grid instead of cutting individual squares for the sandwich method.

  • Replace all 2-7/8" squares with long strips of fabric that are 2-7/8" wide.
