My arms are short and my shoulders are bad, so I fold it a second time because I cannot reach out much more than 18” for cutting. Lay a rotary-cutting ruler along the fold as close to the fold as possible. Cut the fold away (Diagram 7). Bring in a second ruler and measure 1” from the cut edge. Abut the first ruler along the inside edge of the second ruler, pull the second ruler away, and make the cut, using the first ruler as the cutting edge (Diagram 8).

6 Stitch a large triangle to each side of the center diamond (Diagram 2). Note that two outer corners of the center diamond extend beyond the large triangles. Stop and backstitch ¼” from the end of the large triangles to allow the center diamond’s borders to overlap the next border, leaving the corner extensions free.
