    You need:

    a variety of fabrics
    rotary ruler and cutter recommended

    Step 1 - start with two contrasting squares. any size, as long as both are the same size

    :shock: Use one block as the template for the next! Never thought of that. Time to head for the sewing room and have some fun! Thanks, Patrice.

    Yes this is it . The only thing different is she would cut the "x" after sewing all around the fabric.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PROVIDING THIS FOR US!!!!

    Using the completed block to cut next block is a genius idea!! This would make it very easy to customize the size to what you wanted it to be.

    I'm kinda confused. How would you cut the x after sewing all around? I mean do you draw a line and use scissors and cut just the one layer very straight on the lines :?:

    Bellaboo, on the original tute you lay the two identical square right sides together, then stitched 1/4" completely around the two...then you lift up the top layer very carefully, and snip into the centre of the X and cut along the X just up to the stitch line this creates the next layer...

    Patrice made it easier, by simply cutting the cross BEFORE realigning all the pieces back into a square on top and stitching around the edge :D

    Does that make any more sense??? :D

    Great technique. Also love the pic of the kitty. She needs a tiny little quilt to sleep under.
