    Cut N Fold Quilt

    Had the book for yrs and opened it once...Then I saw that my local QS was giving classes so that was much easier then trying to figure it out myself

    Beautiful work! I saw this demo'd at a quilt guild meeting. They showed a special ruler that you use to make the blocks.
    Did you make your own or did you even need one?

    I love the colors you chose.

    I think this technique is new to me.
    I don't remember seeing or hearing about it before.

    Here's a brief description:
    http://books.google.com/books/about/...d=dxULqG9BQu0C

    (if you view the book, you can a more detailed explanation)


    ANd the book at Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Teach-Yourself.../dp/1601407564

    Here's another picture:

    And here's a little tutorial - but I'm still buying the book:

    Beautiful quilt. I love the pattern and the colors you used.
    One of the students in a science class where I work had a book on Origami today. It had ideas about using origami patterns in quilts. Of course, I was interested. I may have to find that book in the library later.

    And this post from 2009 on the QB - Scroll down for the author's (Carol) response:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1/bought-new-book-t32385.html


    Okay, I think I get it now.
    That tutorial I referenced had me a bit confused.
    You only cut 2 of the fabrics (those pictures didn't make it clear)
    Ordered the book already - the drawings of the motifs will be helpful.
