I read about this technique on Quiltville yesterday. I was working on a modified 9 patch at home last night and decided to try it. Wow, what a difference that made. Working with those 1 1/2" squares would have become very tedious if I had to do all of that stopping, snipping, trimming. Another fine site I learned about here on this board.
The quilt is coming along, I should be done with the top this weekend. I will post pics when I get that far.
