    Trying new techniques

    I've been going through my books to cull out those I don't want anymore. Sometimes I make a little sample quilt to try out the technique before I decide to give away the book.

    Here's a sample from Bargellos With a Twist, by Maggie Ball.
    This top is made with only sixteen 7" blocks, so not a big investment of time or fabric.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    And the blocks are all the same, is that correct? If so, what a neat quilt to make and yours turn out great.
