XCentric Block Quilt

Found the perfect fabric to play with the XCentric Block - love the optical illusions that are created!   This technique is from Anita Grossman Soloman's book "Rotary Cutting Revolution".
Clockwise from top left - original fabric, square cut and
and resewn back into a new square,
final block, quilt top corner
