    I wish I'd seen this tut before beginning my current quilt which a lady has asked me to make for her. The pattern is easy to follow but it's cutting out the triangles when the measurements are fiddly. Like my one has 8 and quarter and 8 and five eighths squares. If the light is poor it can be a right pest making sure measurements are exact. The lady took the fabric back from Africa already made into a bed runner by young girls using a rickety old sewing machine and with no access to manuals or the Internet for 'how to's'. I had to unpick the runner down to the pieces they'd cut so as the lady asked for the blocks to be made as if they were stacked upon each other this card pattern was the only one I came across that would be suitable. So far I've made six 22ins blocks, making them as big as the strips would allow in order to show off the bold designs on the fabrics. Your way would've been so much easier!
