A few years ago I purchased a quilting book that I just had to have. I learned the authors techniques for stacking layer upon layer of fabric squares. Then slicing it and resewing the strips together. I made a bunch of table runners this way.
On this stack I started with five fat quarters, cut random slices because I was just learning about the technique.
Then you shuffle the rows.
Once sewn together into blocks, they are squared off and there you have a fast quilt!
For this quilt I decided on linear path and so it was quilted that way.
I chose to make the back side modern, as I was just learning about that too! It was later donated to the local gift basket for new moms.
Since then, I've become more courageous about messing up and have sliced a second time and resewn strips a second time.
Its on the table again with another simple table runner.
You can see I've made more than a few quilts, using this technique and buying her book is a recommendation if you are turned on by her simple "Rule Breaking Quilts" book by Kathryn Schmidt. I searched around for her and perhaps she doesn't have a blog? If you know her blog address, I'd love to follow her work, please leave us a comment!
But if you'd like to know more about how to make my versions of "Two Hour Slice and Dice Table Runner" do click on this link.
I'm having a good day today and I thank my blessings for that! Hope you all are having a great fall day. The leaves are falling and I'm going to take a little walk later today. I'll take some fall shots of the beautiful Bulkley River.
Happy Quilting and I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network
