Draw a grid of squares on the lighter color fat quarter, making the grid be 1" larger than the size of HST you will need.
Draw diagonal lines through the grid so that each square has ONE diagonal line in it.
Sew 1'4" away from EACH side of EACH diagonal line.
Press the fat quarters after sewing.
Cut apart on EVERY DRAWN LINE.
Square up each HST.

Determine the size of finished block you want, then add 1/2" to allow for the 1/4" seams. In my case, I used 4-1/2" blocks that resulted in two 4" 4-patches.
First step: Select two contrasting fabrics, place right sides together, then

So this quilt evolved, into something like a biography, something like a charm bracelet, something I could immerse myself

1. I sew my individual blocks into rows, but don't sew the rows into one top. Generally I like my blocks to be 6-7 inches. I realize there is no vertical quilting lines using this method, but me and others
