I had another inquiry from a friend regarding a use for the Folded Corner Clipper. She wondered if she could make a Snowball Block, and on the corners, use triangles instead of squares. I thought that was an interesting question, and looked into it.
My first thought was would there be an advantage to doing it this way? Perhaps one could save fabric by having less to trim away. Or, if they already know that they have limited fabric for a project, this would be one way to minimize waste.
The first step would be to cut the triangles to be used in place of small squares on the corners. Of course, the Folded Corner Clipper makes this easy, and uses less fabric than other methods. For 2″ corners, cut 2.5″ strips and begin cutting the triangles:
I found that placing the corners by visually lining it up wasn’t accurate enough for me. I used the Folded Corner Clipper to confirm that the seamline would be centered on the corner of the large square:
Do you have any questions on using the Folded Corner Clipper? If so, please let me know!
