I can't find anything online about this technique other than to say it's one using patchwork. Does anyone know how to do this technique? Can anyone whip up a tutorial or have somewhere I can go? Thanks.

That looks like it could teach me a lot, but I just hate paying for information that should be free. Thank you though.

I think that's it, NLJ. I don't remember there being a grid, but I'm not very familiar with the technique. I remember seeing it on Christmas ornaments and such. It seems like the simpler something is the more I get confused. Do you know enough about it to explain it to me?

I've never sewn this pattern before but it looks pretty easy.  This explanation explains it a little more.  You might have to just experiment a little.

I found an easy folded star pattern in a book I have.  The star is made on a muslin foundation piece that's marked horizontally, vertically and diagonally.  The fabric pieces are folded and pressed than arranged on the foundation and sewn down.  Hard to explain, but it looks very easy to do.

The name of the book is "The Directory of Quilting Technques", and it's no longer available on Amazon.com, but maybe you can find it used.  The directions are only two pages long.
