I've only done this on 2 little blocks that I did just for the purpose of testing it out and it is PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only problems I had were Operator Headspace problems <BWG>. I can't wait to use it on a complete blanket. Maybe I'll just have to invent one to use it on.

K3n, thank you for this tutorial. I tried it and loved the simplicity of the procedure and the outcome. I used glue instead of the way you recommended, just because I had never tried glue. I like that also. Today I went to Joann's and got the tiny tip for the glue bottle as has been recommended in other threads. For the backing piece, cut 1 1/2 inches, finished to 3/4 inch, I used a bias tape maker and it was so simple. I am excited to finish the project I am currently on and do a quilt in this method. Thanks for your detailed, simple instructions.

Excellent! I was hoping someone would try it with glue! I'm so pleased it worked. And a bias tape maker in that size makes it so much simpler too - I only have a 1/4" one for stained glass appliqué - might have to invest in a bigger one! :-D
