The Afternoon Knows what the Morning Never Suspected

Thought I'd show you a problem that I was having trying to make some bias stems for a few leaf blocks. I top-stitched the stem across the square and then I needed to square it up.
Here is where it jammed in the sewing machine and got all twisted. I kept thinking that there has to be a much easier way to do this, so this is what I came up with.
I sewed a long strip of the straight-of-grain stem across a larger square (corner to corner on the bias).
Then I cut the squares out of that piece of fabric. Trimmed from one side, turned, and then trimmed the other side to get the size I needed. It worked great. Frustrations over!
