I FORGOT TO SHOW YOU THE BACK OF THE BLOCK
Isn't it awesome? The instructions said it would twist in the center and it does. I just love for my back to look just as good as the front (doesn't always turn out that way). I know, no one will see it...but it sure makes me happy when it looks good.
Now to answer some of the comments (which I thank you for)...I am one to visit the site of the commentors but very rarely will I comment, not because I don't want to but because I would be on this computer all day, as it is....I do spend a fairly good amount of time on it. So...I do not know if it is a new technique, the copywright says 1988 (so I guess that answers the question). I got it off ebay...gotta love ebay. I did look at some green material to do the corners with...so I will take that in advisement. It took me all of 2 hours to sew the strips and cut out 8 blocks. Then the next day 2 more hours to sew the blocks (had to make 3 more strips and so a total of 12 blocks) and mess with the corners...it goes way fast and is soo much fun. I sound like I invented this ruler and have stock in it??? Hummmmmm
