  1. Using this one will eliminate waste of fabric; however, another quilt can be made from leftovers. The other method eliminates using templates and seems faster, judging from the instructions. Haven’t made it yet. I will try both ways, maybe one will proved more accurate end result. Thanks. Both instructions are very clear to me. Ecarp
