Place that pair of fabrics right sides together.

Tip: If your fabric is directional, make sure that the fabric square is right side up.


2. Cut 2 1/2’’ squares from the bottom corners of the fabrics.

3. Place the other set of fabrics right sides together and cut 2 1/2’’ squares from the bottom corners of those two fabric squares also.
