    Ah ha, the light bulb has just come on in my brain, I've got it now. As usual I was overthinking it and making it more complicated than it was.

    funny how we tend to try to make things so complicated when it turns out to be soooooo simple :)
    i was totally amazed when i first went in to lay these out for the first time and realized i had 96 blocks! they went together so fast, and i only traced 48...of course, now i see the math...but it was still a surprise to get so many done in no time at all. and isn't it fun to see how different fabrics make such different blocks? greatest thing about quilting! I love to come up with a block and talk 5 friends into making it with what ever fabric they choose, then we all compare...such differences!!!
    i am glad so many of you are enjoying these...jump in and give it a try ;)

    So true! When I saw this in the magazine it did NOTHING for me...then I saw yours and thought "I've got to make this..it's gorgeous!!"

    I get overwhelmed when I see all that detail in cutting but that is a clever way to make that quilt and the black background is perfect with your color choices. I just might be able to pull that one off. Can you share where you got your pattern?

    So, I get it, but is this a replacement idea for paper piecing? If so, I'm in. Thanks.

    no, i don't think it is a replacement for paper piecing, i love to paper piece this is just another applique technique letting you make 2 blocks with only one fusable pattern i think they are neat and loved making them, thought others may too.

    I love the first layout in your other post on this. This has the finished look of paper piecing without all the hard work or for those of us who haven't had much luck with PP.
    Great job and thanks for the tute!

    Im a little confused - how can this block be paper-pieced - I don't see it! I thought it was design. cut, fuse and then stitch or secure - where is the paper piecing part?
