If I had made this one the way that the software showed me, it would have required a lot of Y-seams. So I decided to "cheat" and put the seams in where I felt like putting them in.
This block, "B-9, Tinker Toy", was rotary cut for the most part and then I just used the raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch for the center square.
Did you know that what most quilters know as "cheater panels" are now called "convenience cloths" by the manufacturers?...I guess that means that my methods are not "cheating", they are just "convenient". So there!
P.S. My blog friend Tropical Screamer had a good word for it, too -- "efficiency"! I like that.
