Hand Pieced Quilt-A-Long Block #9 Square in a Square

This week's block is a square in a square block. Another easy one, perfect for a fussy cut center.

You will need:
4 ~ 3 7/8 in. Half-Square Triangles for the outer square
4 ~ 3 in. Half-Square Triangles for the inner square
1 ~ 3.5 inch square for the center

Sew the long side of the inner square half-square triangle onto each side of the center square.

Sew the long side of the outer square half-square triangle along each edge of the square. That's it!

Here is my Friendship Star block from last week.

Here are all of my blocks together so far.

Ahhh they all look so great! I'd love a more detailed look at how it is exactly that you're hand piecing these... Like the way you're stitching them. I love EPP but I'm not sure I know how to do what you're doing!

Oh I love those blocks! This is the moment where I curse not having enough time to sew :)
