I didn't read the book, but I saw an episode on Simply Quilts where an 8-sectioned doily was cut into quarters. When inserted into the corner, each section looked like a heart. It was a Valentine's episode.
Just wondering: Wouldn't the crochet stitches start coming apart? After all, they are just "chain stitches." Just wondering how it can be done without everything unraveling!
That was one of my concerns. Think it would probably be better to do an edging to go around the blocks with no raw edges.
