    In addition to turning them into a quilt, you turn them in different directions (for variety) so maybe it's both.

    kinda like the Take 5 patterns are to 'take' 5 different fabrics and make a quilt.

    the pattern is based on a 20- fat quarter collection, you cut the blocks all together, mix up the pieces and put them back together. the 20 fat quarters is all it takes unless you decide to add borders.

    You turn each block 90 degrees as you piece it.

    wait till you figure out the BQ pattern. it's big block quilt I think. large squares of focus fabric with strips sewn on to make large blocks.
    goodness, Salsa and other names for quilts out there. can't think of them all right now.

    I didn't use a pattern for mine. I cut squares and rectangles to make a 12" finished block, then I rotated them and sewed them together. Here are a couple of pics of the ones I did.
