Yes, I am not actually part of Hive 9. I belong to Hive 7, but as I am queen bee this month in my own hive and have nothing to do, I made Shauna a couple of blocks.
This was my first attempt at the no-waste-four-geese-at-a-time method. I made one block using the trim down measurements Shauna gave and one block using the exact cut measurements. Normally, I like to cut big and trim, but there is a technical problem when you do that: an extra flap of fabric that you then have to unpick stitches to remove. With this method, I found cutting exactly worked better.
|Did anyone else cut big and find this happened to them?|
This was the first new-to-me method from Stash Bee this year, and I like trying new things.
My favourite easy quilt pattern is just squares – lots of scrappy squares. I do not need a pattern, they are easy to sew and I get to play with fabric colours, which is the most fun part. I also love other easy one-block quilts, like triangles and thimbles.
