A REALLY USEFUL TECHNIQUE


Ages ago us less modern quilters learned new techniques by watching Alex Anderson  and Billie Lauder on TV. Yes there was TV before You Tube! Billie has THE most amazing way of creating 2 nine patch blocks with each cut and construction. Some times when I am in between projects and I can't quite figure out what to start next, I make these units. Nine patch blocks are very versatile and making a lot of them is time well spent. Enjoy!
