I think that the Square in a Square block (especially the smaller ones) are perfect for paper piecing. Paper piecing means not having to worry about the bias side of the triangle moving while I sew or keeping a perfect 1/4" seam allowance. Paper piecing is great for precision.
For a mini quilt I am making, I needed a bunch of 2" (finished) square in a square blocks. I created the block template in Corel Draw and thought that the template might be helpful to other quilters. So I drew out ten (10) templates for 2" up to 6 ½" square in a square blocks in ½" increments and put the them up (for free) in my Craftsy shop. You can find the free templates right here.
Please note: the file does not contain paper piecing or fabric cutting instructions, the file is only the templates for paper piecing.
When printing these templates, print at either “no scaling” or “100% scaling”. Each page contains a test 1” square to ensure the correct sizing of the blocks.
I hope you find the templates useful :)
