    Wow!

    I should try that sometime. My husband wants a scrappy quilt made with 2" squares. Certainly would be worth a shot.

    I have bought the interfacing already marked in squares. I think I got it at Jo-Anns several years ago. This is really an easy, fun way to put a quilt top together.

    I have a friend who is using the technique. I don't care for all that extra bulk added with the interfacing. quilting through regular seams is sometimes a problem, double the total layers if you add in another layer.
    Try it with a 9 patch first and see what you think.
