Oh, and thanks for the advice, I thought I was the only one to be concerned about this. cindy
    I've used spray sizing and what i do is after sewing around all 4 sides, I spray and starch both sides of the charm square "sandwich" before cutting. Gives the fabric body and prevents it from stretching around so much. Worked wonders!

    The link that Blondie put on is pretty much the same tut as the one for pinwheels that is included in the Sympoz classes. Begin with startch to keep the triangles from getting wonky. Experience speaking what little I have, learned this the hard way. LOL

    Is this the one you mean?

    I think this may be the one. I am not sure if there are others.

    I believe it was... take 2 squares (any size), sew all the way around then cut diagonally both ways and get 4 half sq triangles.
