Pros and Cons

Advantages

Disadvantages

Application

Most often used with:

CC flying geese
Flying Geese

CC square in square
Square-in-a-Square

Measurements

CC measure

Size of square for Covered Corners:
The length of the triangle’s side adjacent to the corner
(its right angle)
plus ½”.

Preparation

CC iron fold

Mark the wrong side of the square:
* with a pencil line
* press a fold

Sewing

Line up the square with the edge of the rectangle, then sew a seam one thread’s width from the marked/ironed line. This tiny allowance makes room for the fold of the fabric.

CC stitch

Trimming – Option One

Trim away just the middle layer of fabric to reduce bulk.

CC trim half

Trimming – Option Two

FIRST, fold the corner into place, using the background rectangle to assist its alignment. Press. Trim away all of the excess fabric to reduce bulk.

CC trim all

Trimming – Option Three

CC trim all - stitch

Sew another seam ½” from the original. Cut through both layers, between the seams. You will have trimmed the unit to reduce bulk, and made a spare Half-Square Triangle

CC trim all - separate

Application of Second Corner

Repeat the process. The two triangles overlap exactly on the ¼” seam line, therefore it is essential to iron and trim one corner before applying a second.

Joining to Other Units

Take care that the ¼” seam does not extend beyond the crossed seam lines attaching the triangles, lest the ‘points are cut off’ the triangles.
