    But I still dont understand how you attach the blocks to each other and make the quilt fall nicely when used?
    Perhaps this video link will make it clear.

    Thanks for the help. I live in an RV so space is a premium and this technic will be a big help. Trying to quilt a whole quilt at a time would be a hassell.

    This is very interesting, but I am the recipient of quilted blocks (machine quilted) that have all three layers the same size! There is no overage in the backing material to stitch together, then fold over and stitch. I have seen some instructions on adding narrow strips to the front and back of the blocks, then sewing another block to the front, open it, add a strip of batting and then fold over the backing strip to the second block and hand stitch/whip the edge closed. Does anyone have a better way of doing this? Thanks, mariesto

    How about a rag quilt made with these blocks?

    I'm thinking about doing this with a cotton topping and fleece backing with no batting. Do you think the corners where 4 blocks meet would get too bulky with this technique?
