I don't remember where I saw that was the technique that was used, somewhere in a zillion posts. Here is a description and there are many youtube videos too.

Welcome to everyone who has joined me in making this!
I haven't worked on this as much as I would have liked lately. (my ADD was trying to rear its ugly head)
I did get a few more squares done and am now working on the mitred one. I dreaded it terribly after all the comments I read. I have found the hardest thing about this square is keeping track of the first row. Once you have the first row done it is less difficult, unless you count all those dreaded ends! I think I can use them to help seam the squares together.
A little trick I did was to follow the patterns suggestion and mark the centre stitch. Once the first row is perfect and that centre stitch is marked, (just move the marker each row once that stitch is complete) it really is a very easy square. Then again, I am also doing one other trick to help me make it easier, maybe you will find it will help you too, I am working on one colour at a time. Then I start the next square. I now have 7/16 started. A couple are a little further ahead out of ADD curiosity. One is much further ahead, but sadly I ran out of the (pink) I was using early. I admit I haven't finished a single one yet, so maybe it will get tougher closer to the end? I sure hope not!
