    Though you do not need to turn the ♥'s upside down. Keep it all the same direction, and just move the cut pieces as suggested in my PP.

    Same effect and easier to keep it all oriented correctly.

    EXCELLENT IDEA, CAN BE USED WHENEVER MAKING A TRIAL BLOCK. May in Jersey

    Thanks.
    You can make it all with the pieces right side up. Just be sure when you do your slice and dice that you don't twist the pieces. Just switch the top left with the bottom right, sew it up and you've got your D9P block. Then onwards to the next.

    Just watch you don't inadvertently shift one of the blocks at some point!

    Yes! This is the one I was trying to find.... :lol:

    I used directional materials in 3 of my 4 corners, which meant I had to resew blocks later when I found the directions of the fabrics were not working for me. My example shown was a different print and color in every block, which made it quite a bit harder to organize into a pleasing pattern. It turned out well, however!

    Thanks for the tutorial Sophie!
