Once in a great while, when the seasons are changing, I'll hear distant cries. I quickly run outside to witness the majestic site of a flock of geese, migrating to some distant location. For a few moments, time stands still, and my heart sings.
This is my new "go-to" fast quilt, and a great option for donation quilts. I can get one done in 6-7 hours (maybe faster for you, I'm pretty slow), a good "purge exercise".
The idea is to use as much of a fat quarter as you can. So I've done 17 inch squares, but 14 inch is my favorite. When time is of the essence, it's an easier size to work with, and I like the finished look.
I was skeptical about this tool, then I tried it ... it is amazing! No ink showing through, and it is easy to see. Available at the big box or your LQS.
I dug through my box of "left-overs" to make the back. A left-overs box is what happens when you divert from pattern directions frequently :)
If I don't have much white fabric in the top and back, I use my batting scraps, spray basting them well so they stay close until quilted.
10 light fat quarters
