    Someone posted to this thread that they would like a tutorial in English. I thought I would give it a try.
    When I stacked them, I placed them on my cutting board and used the lines to place them at 1/2" intervals.
    I tried to place the top fold of the stack as close to the center of the background as possible.
    Thanks QuiltnNan for the tip.

    Start with 6" squares. Need 8 each of 7 fabrics
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184136[/ATTACH]

    Fold in 1/2 and press
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184137[/ATTACH]

    Fold again and press
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184138[/ATTACH]

    Open out and stack with others, with folds at top
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184139[/ATTACH]

    cut a 15.5" background and fold 4 times
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184142[/ATTACH]

    line up center fold along fold in background
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184145[/ATTACH]

    Stitch starting from outside to center & backstich at center. Fold right center over.
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184146[/ATTACH]

    Add next stack and sew like before.
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184148[/ATTACH]

    Now for the fun part. Fold left side top down to fold and crease.
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184149[/ATTACH]

    Unfold and bring fold down to crease
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184150[/ATTACH]

    Now fold again down to center
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184151[/ATTACH]

    and flip it between stacks
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184153[/ATTACH]

    Repeat on the right side
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184154[/ATTACH]

    fold left side to fold
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184158[/ATTACH]

    and flip it between stacks
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184159[/ATTACH]

    Repeat on the right side
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184160[/ATTACH]

    continue down the stack, alternating sides
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184163[/ATTACH]

    flip stack on right to the left and add another stack as before
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]184164[/ATTACH]

    flip stack to the right and fold as before and continue around the block.

    How do you finish it? Do you just stitch around the edge? It still wouldn't look totally finished then, I don't think. Does the background fabric lay flat in the end? This is really pretty. Thanks for the tutorial!
