    New to me!

    Just came across this today - even though I live in the UK had never heard of it before now!

    https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2019...ilt-block.html

    Familiar block but, to me, quite a different way of making it. What do you think? Anybody tried it?

    Wow, I'd call it a log cabin block absolutely love the way it's done, quilt as you go! Very nice, thanks.

      the technique reminds me of Iris paper folding used to do the technique, but the measuring in the manx block is certainly unique.
      certainly inspiring.

        That looks fun to do. I wonder how it would wash though.

          I just found ten old pre-printed pineapple blocks. I may have to try making them up yet. I've had them forever. found i didn't like pre-printed but may try again one more time.

            I had watched this longer ago. Here is a video of when she visited the Isle Of Man showing the women there doing a demo on this technique. https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2019...le-of-man.html

                People were so clever in the olden days. I love how they folded and creased and unfolded the foundation base to create even and straight lines to sew on.
