The following video shows how the quilts go together. You can clearly see how even complex blocks sew up more quickly than those made with standard piecing. Plus, you won’t need to be concerned about lumpy seam intersections and matching points.

Lynne makes sure that triangles are cut on the bias so they don’t fray. She also says:
“I do not trim the background when layering 2 pieces of fabric. The background provides the perfect base unit to piece to other units in your block. With this technique, there are fewer seams over all and less bulk, so it is not necessary. However, if there are 3 layers that all come together in the center of a block, I trim one of the layers for less bulk.”
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
