    I love the pictures on the front of the "Ladies of Leisure" book. Maybe in your "spare time" you could whip up one of those quilts to show off. :D

    whoo hoo! What a nice friend to have sent so many nice books and fabric to you. Your very lucky to have such a nice friend, who cares.

    I too am very interested in learning what the cut and fold method is. I keep thinking something like the old folded stars? But, I am amazed at what the new quilter's come up with.

    Please ... hurry and show us! LOL!

    Well from what I gather from my cursory look at the book you fuse one fabric to the back of another right sides out, then you cut certain patterns on the fabric and then fold back to reveal the fused fabric on the top and place the whole thing onto a third fabric backing to add the third look. Sew down the flaps and there you have it.
