Stitch the bottom fabric square to the open end of the block using ¼ inch seams. Again, start and end your stitching ¼ inch from the edge of the fabric, until stitching the final side of the square. On this final side, stitch only near the ends of the side, leaving an opening in the center of the side for turning the fabric.
