    Thanks everyone - I had a lot of fun with this quilt!

    Deb, it's a fun process - what I did was to draw out what I wanted my finished block to look like - draw a square, divide it into strips and patches; add your 1/4" seam wherever there will be a seam.

    Arranged my FQ's to be light/dark/light/dark. Cut each FQ into those strips & patches. I put each patches into a pile (clamped together so they didn't get mixed up and with a note of the size and location of that patch). Then start shuffling - take the top piece from one pile, move it to the bottom. Take the top 2 pieces from the next pile and put them on the bottom. Keep going with each pile ... if you put the piles on a worktable in the order they will get put back together, you'll end up with lights next to darks with your shuffling.

    Hope this helps!

    That is one gorgeous quilt!!!!!! Is the turning 20 block a hard one to make? I'd love to do something like this for each of my kids.
