    Has anyone created a shortcut to making any of Margaret J.Miller's Block Buster Quilts? I love them,I've even followed the instructions and made a temple for a full quilt.Now,I can't bring myself to start cutting all those little pieces.Any help with this would surely be appreciated!
    Thanks.

    amazon shows the cover and a few sample ages.


    a lot of the pieces appear to be paper pieced. that's a lot easier than trying to put a lot a small pieces together. are you trying to do this on your own as a version of the book?

    It's my second attempt at quilting.I did a very small Log Cabin with a Twist.That turned out okay.I spent 2 weeks just getting this one on graph paper.I'll try to post a picture from the book,just to give you an idea of what I'm trying to do.
