i love this! I tried doing this once, and i was just too impatient and speeding through it and got all sorts of weird puckers in the seams and it just didn't look clean. I agree with below, you make this look easy. And a great i'ble!

Did you try it? It isn't that easy to line things up right but once you do, it goes quickly.
I haven't tried it yet - it's just that you made it "look" easy to do.
