Quilt Along Cornerstones

Standard

To finish the quilt you will need some cornerstones–20 to be exact!

The color choice is up to you, but I used the same color as the small squares in the sashing blocks.  This made a nice alternating color scheme in the sashings.

Begin by cutting your pieces:

Color fabric:

20 squares at 3 5/16″ x 3 5/16″

White fabric:

40 squares at 3″ x 3″

Cut the white squares in half diagonally.

CS1

Lay the long edge of one white triangle along one side of one of the color squares and stitch at 1/4″.  Do your best to center the triangle onto the square.

CS3

Add another triangle on the other side.

CS4

Press both triangles away from the square.

CS5

Trim the “dogears” along the unsewn edge of the color square.

CS6

Add triangles onto the remaining sides, keeping the triangles centered on the square

CS7

Press the triangles away from the square.

CS8

Trim the the block so it measures 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ with the intersections 1/4″ away from the edge.

CS9

You will need to make 20 of these for the quilt!
