    Thanks - I've bookmarked this...I have just the person in mind for a quilt with a geometric design. My only worry was how on earth to simplify it for my "non-geometric" brain.

    It's also easy to do the cubes in horizontal strips as per the OBW Encore book and method.
    I did a Christmas hanging a few months ago - you could space out the cubes with plain strips to differ the effect

    Once you see how these are constructed, you will be amazed. It is all in sewing half hexes not full ones. :D:D:D
