    By making the middle square much larger and folding it back, you get the Drunkard's Path type look.

    How do you make the middle square larger? Do you mean cutting it larger to begin with? If so, how much larger than the other 4 squares would you cut it?

    This is the practice block I made. I'm not sure what I'll make - maybe a table runner for the summer patriotic holidays.

    your block looks super
    Thanks Sue - I have the UTube video bookmarked but what I was looking for was the thread that was on here last week discussing that block. Can anyone find it. I did the search but couldn't get it.

    I finally found it on amazon.com. Right now it is out of stock, but you can be placed on the waiting list. Its $12 plus shipping.

    Is this it? It's mentioned about 6 or 7 messages down.

    I made my center block 1 1/2 " larger than the other blocks and could have gone 2" larger

    I wouldn't do 10" squares but did like the smaller squares...guess best thing to do is just do a few sample pieces and see what appeals most to you
