  1. For the magic eight method, don’t you only sew down either side of the diagonal lines and then cut on all four lines? You don’t sew on either side of the horizontal and vertical lines, do you?

  2. Pam, your engineer brain overthunk the 8 half-square method. You only sew the diagonal (cattywhompus) lines, then cut on the vertical and horizontal lines. This is my favorite method as it keeps the triangle corners from getting sucked into my feed dogs. (I have issues.)
