    Someone posted to this thread that they would like a tutorial in English. I thought I would give it a try.
    When I stacked them, I placed them on my cutting board and used the lines to place them at 1/2" intervals.
    I tried to place the top fold of the stack as close to the center of the background as possible.
    Thanks QuiltnNan for the tip.

    Start with 6" squares. Need 8 each of 7 fabrics

    How do you finish it? Do you just stitch around the edge? It still wouldn't look totally finished then, I don't think. Does the background fabric lay flat in the end? This is really pretty. Thanks for the tutorial!
