Today I am sewing together my third cut on these Crazy Shortcut blocks.
I admit to being disappointed, but I think this is generally what happens when you’re part of the way through a project, whether it be a drawing, a necklace, or a quilt. The final result pulls all the colours together, and the sashing will be important to the overall finished look too. I saw an example on the Internet of some nice striped sashing on a quilt as you go project, but I’m not buying any more fabric, I’ve got some medium purple fabrics for the sashing. At this point I’m sorry I didn’t use regular pieced blocks though.
It might look all a-jumble but I’ll keep trying as I think this is a fine method. The trick is pulling it together, which is a classic challenge in quilting. Years ago people didn’t go out and buy a bundle of coordinated fabric or pre-cut squares from one fabric manufacturer. That’s no fun!
