    Sorry, I've never used the Easy Angle. I really haven't done that many HST's or QST's to have developed a favorite method for making them. I've tried several different methods, just haven't settled on one yet.

    I agree with all of MTS's comments. I do think that larger blocks would be better on a larger quilt, and I don't think I would use FQ's for this pattern because of the waste. I would look for a FQ-friendly pattern instead, or use yardage.

    Or the 24 FQ's didn't include the background fabric for the Jewel Box quilt, which would mean it WAS twice the amount of fabric (~12 yards of fabric).

    That makes more sense.
