So this is an AMAZING, fun and fast way to make a block, that has the look of a “string quilt” block or an hourglass block. The cool thing about this idea is that you are able to either make it very matchy-matchy or you have the freedom to make it very random and scrappy. Their are also a lot of other ways to put it together, and you achieve a totally different look however you choose to lay it out!
All kinds of ideas are mulling around in my head of what else is possible with this technique. Jelly Rolls make this so easy, too! (I already have plans to piece one with honey bun strips.) I can’t wait to show you! I swear, once you try it you will be SO hooked.
Here is the ‘Main’ tutorial for the technique…..Oh man, you are gonna love it.
Ps. We’d love to see a shot of your project, if you make one…..We don’t care if it is finished or in progress. (upload a pic to our forums, so we can all ooh and ahh over it!!)
Have a fabulous day.
