This is Getting Ridiculous!

Take a look at that diagram.  Note that it says it finishes at 2 inches by 5 inches.  Now count the pieces.  Did you get 72?  72??  And, they want us to do it with templates!!  Each of those little right angle triangles finishes 1/4 inch by 3/4 inch.  Are they crazy?  Do they think I'm crazy?

This, by the way, is the companion block from last month's Freebie Fifteen.   The quilt shop that is offering this will remain anonymous for this post.

I'm seriously thinking of just making 3 stripes and be done with it.  On the other hand, I could draft up a paper piecing pattern...

Could you piece two bias stripe together and then use a template to cut the units?
