|Earlier, I showed you how I did the dog tooth borders here, that I am putting on my Memory Garden blocks. Now we are on to the corners on the final block.|
|All the sides have been appliqued. Now it's time for the corners.|
Finger press your square on the bias and fold in half, bringing
opposite corners together.
|Pin the resulting triangle in place and|
applique across the bias edge.
|After appliqueing, trim away the lower half of the square,|
leaving a scant quarter inch seam.
|You could trim away your background fabric also, but I|
left mine and basted my corner to it.

|My dog tooth border was so much easier with these tools!|
I wear the finger pincushion on my thumb--perfect place to park a
pin while turning under a dog tooth! Learn how to make one here

I sometimes wonder how I got along without my little thread catcher.
You can squish it up and tuck it in your take-along bag and not leave
a trail of threads--smart! This was a free project from Lisa
Bongean of Primitive Gatherings.Find the instructions here.
Lastly, I love my Karen Kay Buckley scissors. They don't have a super sharp point,
but DO have an awesome serrated edge that really grabs the fabric--perfect for
cutting out applique shapes without slipping.
