    I've been having sew much fun :) I got Anita Grossman Soloman's book "Rotary Cutting Revolution" and have been playing with the XCentric Block.

    Found a nice stripey fabric at one of my LSQ's, and put this together. Finished a top today. The photos show the fabric, first stage of the square and the next stage. I love all the illusions this block creates!

    Gorgeous! Must take some doing with all the stripes & seams to match up, but you did a great job. Thanks.
