When I was flipping though Anita Grossman Solomon's new book, Rotary Cutting Revolution, I really didn't think I liked the Xcentric Block. But when I was looking for fabric to make the Arrowhead block, I found this awesome stripe. What the heck. I'll give it a try.
I love these blocks! I quickly and easily made 4 cute little blocks. Of course, I didn't follow the directions to start with 8" squares. Mine were 4.5". What can I say. I'm a rebel! Four identical squares produce 2 Xcentric units and 2 Concentric units.
