    Pretty, especially the last one, where the flower in center really pops. Great ideas.

    Is the center square appliqued or is it pieced into the quilt?

    Nice! I especially like the puppy ones! For the one where the center block goes to the edge, did you just double the size of the block (or half the size of the four outside blocks)?

    I used 4 6/12" squares and I thought I would try to see how big I could make the center square, so I made a 12" square. I think it would look nice with a 10" square. The one with a rose is from 5 charm squares. That was the first one I made. The one with the black, red ,and blue flowers with the red center, I made into a cathedral window. I machine stitched the window, however, I am making a cathedral window quilt which I have posted on this board that is hand stitched and I like the looks of the hand stitching better.

    I just learned about this technique recently and watched the youtube tute of it.

    Picture this .... as they were explaining it, I grabbed a stack or post-it notes and used them to mock up the pattern! Then took it to my sewing machine.

    did the same thing with the One Seam 3-D Flying Geese.

    Gotta love these slick techniques! :)

    The black,red, and white quilt I posted,I didn't like the bump in the middle. I carefully cut that out on the baCk leaving one inch all around the block. It looks so much better and lays flat.

    the rose caught my eye too -
    it would be interesting to see a quilt out of fussy cut flower blocks with just the right background fabric.
    I bet it would be spectacular.

    I just watched the video on this - for the 5 square example, are all 5 squares the same size?

    Yes, except the one that shows the big center square. The rose came out to 9 1/2" and the others are 12 1/2" squares.

    I have made several quilts using different size squares doing this method. Love it!
