    I've seen that tutorial and thought about it, too. She does make it look fast and easy, doesn't she?

    I didn't quite catch everything but think she used two pieces of each fabric to get the pieces needed for the project. I was wondering if you could cut them out clean enough (for those who have die cutters) put an oversized piece of fusible web behind the opening for the circle. Then you could swap the circles from one fabric to the other and fuse in place. You could sew the circles to the contrasting fabric square with a stitch that would join the two. Then cut into fourths. Would only use half as much fabric that way.

    Eleanor Burns has an easy version of that pattern also. It's listed under the name "Old Maid's Puzzle" because there was a superstition about "Drunkard's Path". http://quiltinaday.com/theater/egg/egg5.html
