    I was thinking the same thing about the wasted fabric used to make the "pocket".

    It seems like an easy block...I just don't want to waste fabric (unless I am missing something with the extra fabric).

    Have a great weekend everyone

    I also would rather not waste the material, but if I have to in order to get this great block, I guess I'll have to.
    Does anyone have a secret so material is not wasted?

    I am not sure you are actually wasting fabric. I say that because if you used a regular triangle for piecing the block, you would have to cut off the corner of the rectangle so the reality is that you are just swapping one for the other (if that makes sense).

    I finally got the book. At first the block was confusing as the bottom of the triangle seemed to be 1/2" longer then the bottom of the block. With careful folding and pressing it worked out fine. I used layer cakes cut in half to make the blocks so it took less time then 5 min. to make.
    Got fabric?

    This looks so easy! I was really amazed at the different looks depending upon how the block was turned. Definitely a pattern to keep, especially if you need to make a quilt in a hurry for a gift. Thanks, for posting!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    I just watched the video and love this block. Thank you for sharing.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
