Sewing quilt blocks are all about taking careful little steps over and over again. As technology improves, the tools to make those steps easier have improved.
One example of technology is the fabric in the foundation of the QuiltSmart templates. They have done a number of patterns including Lone Stars, Double Wedding Rings, and Medallions.
I am trying them out with what they call a Mondo Bag and so far it is as quick and easy as they promise.
