    ok, so i promised to show you how this is done. so, i will try to do this correctly so you get pics with the instructions. then a couple more layouts...
    first you need:
    (1) 61/2" square paper backed fusable (i used heat n bond lite)
    (1) 6 1/2" square design fabric (mine/hot pink)
    (2) 6 1/2" squares background fabric (mine/black)

    next, trace your pattern on the paper side of the paperback fusable.
    iron to wrong side of your design fabric
    cut out your design on the lines
    remove paper and arrange on your black squares...yup, you get (2) 6 1/2" squares for each (1) traced :)
    see how simple that was?
    this technique can be used for lots of different designs...have fun with it i sure have

    Stunning! Now do you have to applique around the edges of the fused pieces?

    yes, you should stitch down the appliques any way you prefer. i am going to 'quilt'them down...stitch them and quilt it at the same time...if i ever decide on a layout.

    Hi there, sorry for this, but I seem to be having a senior moment here. I love that pattern and having read all your instructions it makes sense and I'm going to have a go, but can you tell me how do you put the blocks together? Are they sewn together or are they fused onto a backing fabric?

    i'm not exactly sure what you are asking...i've been laying the blocks out side by side to figure out a layout. when i finally decide on the layout i will simply sew the blocks together, the usual way you sew blocks together.
    the fused part is the design fused onto the black 6 1/2" squares...i'm posting some blocks from a different project using same technique.
    i recommend drawing your own designs. but if you want to use that one it is in McCalls Quilting Jan/Feb 2010

    so sunglasses may be in order

    Well lookie lookie :) I happend to have the McCall's Jan/Feb 2010. But isn't it amazing how you can look at a pattern and think ummm it's ok...then someone does the pattern with a whole different look and bam!!!! you are inspired to make the once not so inspiring pattern....Wow this is on my to do list along with the other millions of patterns I want to do...but think this will move to the very close to the top...unless of course someone else comes along with another gotta do pattern :lol: Oh by the way I love both layouts but lean towards the second picture......
