I was planning on making a 7x7 square, so I cut my squares 14x14. If you want to make a 5x5, cut it 10x10, doubling or rather quadrupling the size. Place your squares right sides together. Then fold them in half diagonally. Then fold that triangle in half again. Iron down your creases and open it up again so you have an ironed-in 'X'.
Next, line the inner edge of your presser foot up with the crease to sew a 1/4" seam all the way down. Sew 1/4" seams on either side of each crease, so you come out with a total of 4 seams.
Square up the square on your cutting mat and cut right down the center on both parallels (up and down and side to side). You will have four small squares.Pin It
