Description

I did see some of my classmates working on "Almazuelas" and was so curious about the technique.
It is all about cutting, folding, ironing and sewing very carefully all the time.
Based on Folded Log Cabin Quilts (Sarah Kaufam) I made my first quilt of this type.  I loved making it.  It is very easy work to face.

Beautiful! I love the mix of blocks. Looks like it took a long time to do

Is this a "quilt as you go" type project? Love the blocks!

How wide are your strips, they look really small. Great design.

Thanks to everyone for your comments!

I started cutting a 7'' square (for the foundation), a 2'' square (for the center) and 1'' 1/2 strips (dark, medium & natural)

I ironed the strips at 3/4'' (as if it was a bias)

I centered the 2'' on the 7'' and pinned it.

Then I sewed two strips (folded side looking to the center, one in front of the other) on the 2'' square and after that, the two next strips the same way at 90ยบ from the two first, allowing a 1'' free of the 2'' square.

(next steps are better explained in the picture that Amazon shows)
