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.
