    Great idea. The only thing I see is a waste of alot of fabric with the multiple layers. I think I would cut the smaller squares for the triangles. There would be less bulk and make more blocks. You could also cut away the back layer for less bulk. You would still have a quicker block assembly using your method but less bulk and more fabric to use in the long run. The cut away areas can be used in scrap quilts etc.

    May be a little waste of fabric, but it’s a big savings of time. Thanks for sharing.

    I just found this site last night and so glad because with this brilliant technique I should be able to knock out more charity quilts. Like most quilters I have cupboards and bins full of fabric. I’m involved with Project Love & Care, a local charity for abused/abandoned kids who are going into foster care. We also help Aboriginal communities, a women’s shelter and heard just recently we are now sending to Indonesia. So thank you so much.

    Can you tell me the number of charm packs needed to make a queen size quilt ,using your fold and sew technique ? I appreciate your time. Thank you!

      Hi Roberta, A standard 86″ x 93″ queen size quilt would require 110 ten inch precuts and 110 five inch precuts. When a 5″ precut is folded into a 10″ precut as shown in the video, the resultant block is 8 1/2″ finished size so the quilt would be a 10 block by 11 block setting. If the customer wants a larger quilt than the 86″ x 93″ they can add multiples of the 8 1/2″ finished size block until they reach the size they want. I can’t say for sure how many precuts are in charm pack-depends on the company that markets them.

    I totally love this quick and easy quilting method I was thinking of making some for sitting outside at the cabin on those cool evenings. Now I will definitely make some.

    Great discovery!! On the last example with the pinwheels design. It would be cool to squash the triangle open and then lightly tack it down to make it even more tactile for a baby. I am enjoying this site thanks!

    This was a “duh” moment for me. What a brilliant way to come up with a variety of squares without a lot of cutting. I’m sure many of us wish we were so creative. I tend to cut 5″ squares from leftovers fabrics, and love to use precuts for everything. Can’t wait to try this idea in my projects.
