Description

In this video workshop Valerie uses up 5 Fat 1/4m’s (but yards would do too) and uses the rotary cutter to it’s best – cutting through several layers of fabric at the same time – just what it was designed for;  each piece is then exactly the same size as each other. Once you have made all the blocks you just add simple fabric borders;   Valerie’s quilt  with 20 blocks and a 6″  border ended up at  42″ x 52″ approx – so a great lap size/snuggle quilt.

check out  the Show & Tell section of the site where you will find more that Valerie made.

If you use 6 Fat 1/4’s then  there are no repeats of the fabric in each block and you get 4 more blocks and – so you can try a different setting option – and/or maybe use 4 as corners for your borders – trimmed down to fit.

Scrap or layer cake

You don’t have to use new fabric – you could rummage in your stash and cut squares or you could use up the layer cake you just fell in love with at the show and hadn’t yet found a use for.

Rotary cutting Tip

Short tip about using two rulers – if yours is not big enough on it’s own;   and if you are a gadget person, the E-Z Crazy template makes the rotary cutting safe as well as quick and easy and you can enjoy a workshop with Jennie Rayment on how to use this safely

Traditional Crazy Block

Once you have made the quilt you could keep the design pieces and make a single block which you could then embellish and add embroidery to in the more traditional manner.
