I love this pattern. Magic Slice and Dice is where you take four 4 1/2″ strips, place them on top of each other, cut 4 1/2″ squares and then turn the squares. All are identical but facing different ways. You can take the ugliest fabric and turn it into a beautiful quilt. The best thing, you sew it in rows, slice it, flip it around and resew. It looks like it is sewn on the diagonal. I have made about 6 of these – fish fabric, large flowers, asian and others. Try it.
