I couldn't find the newbie tips when I went back to look.  But I think it might have been to mark a diagonal line on the back of the smaller square, place the smaller on top of the larger, right sides together, and then using the mark as a guide, sew a thread or two off the line towards the side of the corner.  Sewing a couple threads distance off the line, works like using a "scant 1/4" seam.  So when it is pressed the corner patch isn't slightly smaller than the rest of the square.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone else remember what the newbie tip was?

By the way, welcome to the group.  I still haven't completed MQ6.  Have to sew my blocks together.

I did not do MQ6, but hopefully someone will come along and give an answer.

Hi vicdbohn, it is nice to meet you. I'm sorry your question got lost in the shuffle but I'm sure someone will know the answer and post soon.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
