    I purchased the booklet at our local Quilt Guild Quilt Show (Rio Grande Valley) and learned to make these. Harder than I thought.

    Purchased at the "Second Hand Rose Sale" and paid a quarter....lol

    I used scaps to make these, not really intending to make a quilt, just make the block.

    When folding and ironing the pleats, the ends must be tucked into the other sides.

    used a bread knife to make the pleats straight

    Iron on tape to keep pleats in place

    Then you sew pleats down.

    Well, isn't that interesting! I believe you that it might be just as hard to do that pleating correctly and evenly as it is to sew a log cabin block.

    But it does make me think about how a pleated block might fit in other places!

    I've never seen that technique before. It looks tricky. Thanks for taking the time to post pics and share with us. :thumbup:

    I think I would prefer the log cabin blocks.
