Island Joins: A Demonstration with Square-in-a-Square

Island Joins

A DEMONSTRATION WITH SQUARE-IN-A-SQUARE

Full-size Square-in-a-Square foundation pattern is on the pullout.

Leaf Dance, 121⁄4˝ × 121⁄4˝, Terrie Sandelin, quilted by Vickie Bajtelsmit, 2007

Some traditional blocks, such as Courthouse Steps and Square-in-a-Square, build from the inside out. Using the Island Joins method allows you to sew these separate blocks together so you can press seams open or pivot their direction for flatter seams.

PREPARING THE FOUNDATION

3. If you are making either the

Center Star or the Four Stars mini, mark the patch placement letters on the foundation. Be sure to place the letters for the triangle patches outside the seam allowance of the center square.

1. As with the basic Fold and Sew patterns, pages 19–21, align adjoining seamlines that are separated by a seam allowance. Fold and crease. Note: You will need to fold the foundation both vertically and horizontally.

2. Mark the 1 ⁄4˝ seam allowance lines that surround the on-point squares.

Square-in-a-Square: Nine Star

Terrie Sandelin C&T Publishing PDF

Square-in-a-Square: Nine Star

1.

◆ FINISHED FOUNDATION:

7˝ × 7˝

◆ TIME:

7 HOURS

Full-size Square-in-a-Square: Nine Star foundation pattern is on the pullout.

Red and Black, 12˝ × 12˝, Terrie Sandelin, 2007

This is the most challenging quilt in the book. I recommend that you try your hand at two or three of the simpler quilts before tackling this one!

The key difference between the Square-in-a-Square: Nine

Star and your basic Square-in-a-Square foundation is that not all of the blocks on the Nine Star are full Square-in-aSquare patterns. Instead, the number of corner triangles in each block ranges from zero to four. This allows the look of a more intricate pattern without adding unnecessary seams.

You’ll use the Nine Star template to cut the center square to the correct shape. Other than using the template to create different shapes, the construction method is the same as for the other Square-in-a-Square patterns. You will skip over more sections, because some squares do not need to be sewn. However, the basic pattern of sewing across the foundation on the diagonal remains the same.
