What happens when you have a designer who not only wants to be as scrappy as possible, but hates wasting fabric? Well, all sorts of things because that's pretty much the definition of scrappy.  But, I took it one step further and figured out a way to create HST that don't have a twin, and waste no fabric, by sewing HSTs in accordions! Add another step, and you can sew blocks for an entire quilt in individual accordions that come together almost like magic!  It's the coolest thing I've come up with (if I do say so) and  you'll see the quilts from books on the method plus a few surprise treats. You'll want to pick up your accordion and join the Oompah Session!
