Another Magic Slice and Dice

This is another slice and dice – a pattern where you line up 4 strips of 4 1/2″ wide that are all identical.  You then take your ruler and cut strips into 4 1/2″ squares.  All squares are not the identical print.

Then turn them around so there is a nice swirl effect.  The two best things about this pattern – ugly fabric becomes beautiful and your quilt is sewn in rows but after cutting and reattaching, it looks like it was sewn on point. 

Anyway, I have made about 7 of these and think it is time to retire the pattern.  At least for awhile.

Thanks for reading.

One thought on “Another Magic Slice and Dice

  1. I should really read this before hitting publish. The fabric I used for this quilt was beautiful. But you sometimes see really garish fabric or unusual fabric that looks much better cut up. Take your handy mirror to check what it will look like cut up. Hold mirror at a 90degree angle for the best effect. Or is it affect.?
