    I tried one of the blocks last week and ended up making 2 quilts it was so fun and easy. I had 6 1/2" blocks already cut waiting for me to do something with them. Great fun.

    I looked at this video, and was stunned. How fun is this! As if I don't have enough projects started now!

    I used this same method to make this bowtie quilt. I used 3" squares, so my blocks are a little smaller - but love the effect!

    thanks for that. i also looked at fun and done and found that is evidently how I did my Hawaaian squares quilt. I just thought i figured it out myself. well, i did.hadn't seen fun and done before. quilt as you go actually but i like the backing being the seam covering on the front.

    Am I the only one this seems a little wasteful of fabric to? I guess the time saved makes up for that... somehow tho, it twinges my thrift sense. LOL

    Connecting Threads has the book on sale. I've only done practice blocks, and you lose a little of the center block, but all of the four background blocks are shown.

    You also can order the book at http://www.d-originals.com It is $16.99 there. You might be able to get it at JoAnns too & use a coupon to save some money.

    I really really like the looks better by using a larger block for the center...it fills in more of the whole block...

    I saw this block last week here on the board and couldn't wait to try it. It was so quick and easy. I tried a few days later to go back to the message showing it and couldn't find it. Can someone send the link to it?

    This is the practice block I made. I'm not sure what I'll make - maybe a table runner for the summer patriotic holidays.
