Sometimes time is of the essence and we need to make a quilt in a short period of time. Instead of following the pattern, take a step back and see if it can still be constructed and look the same, with a more streamlined pattern.
Using the printed pattern:
When one deconstruct a pattern, can a row of squares be converted to a rectangle? Taking the pattern row by row, break it down into segments, creating less squares and creating rectangles can greatly reduce cutting and assembly time on a project.
Your cutting guide for your fabrics will change as well. The amount of fabric you will use, will stay the same.
One must create a new cutting guide for the background and the colours in this quilt.
Kits are available at The Sewing Cafe.
