Someone posted to this thread that they would like a tutorial in English. I thought I would give it a try.
When I stacked them, I placed them on my cutting board and used the lines to place them at 1/2" intervals.
I tried to place the top fold of the stack as close to the center of the background as possible.
Thanks QuiltnNan for the tip.
Start with 6" squares. Need 8 each of 7 fabrics


Fold in 1/2 and press


Fold again and press


Open out and stack with others, with folds at top


cut a 15.5" background and fold 4 times


line up center fold along fold in background


Stitch starting from outside to center & backstich at center. Fold right center over.


Add next stack and sew like before.


Now for the fun part. Fold left side top down to fold and crease.


Unfold and bring fold down to crease


Now fold again down to center


and flip it between stacks


Repeat on the right side











fold left side to fold


and flip it between stacks


Repeat on the right side





continue down the stack, alternating sides


flip stack on right to the left and add another stack as before


flip stack to the right and fold as before and continue around the block.
