Quilt ADD in therapy

Colorado, United States
Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

Origami Bowties or Floating Diamonds tutorial

Haha!! Yesterday I swore I wasn't going to make another tutorial for a very long time, but here I am working one up so I don't forget this cheater method I saw demonstrated at our last guild meeting. 'Sides - it was the perfect fit for throwing together some Quilts of Valor blocks.
This tutorial was a lot less involved, though - took all of 20 minutes to cut 8 blocks out and sew one up with camera stops throughout the process.

So. . . how do you get this Floating Diamond Block (or Bow Tie depending on your fabrics) IN THREE SEAMS without having to sew ANY biases, and with EASY PEASY SUPERFAST cutting? Check out the tutorial at my fledgeling Valor Bee blog!

And hey - any of you are welcome in that bee. It's brand new and if you could help spread the word I'd sure appreciate it.
