this quilt by Rossie and this version by Carla are among my favorite modern quilts. So when my month of the Whatever Bee came around, I decided to remedy all that. I pointed my bee mates to Carla's tutorial, which makes two at a time.
- I like some variation in the thickness of the inserted strips: some chunky and some thin.
- Some cross blocks need to be relatively straight in order for the wonky blocks to stand out.
- The more fabrics you use, the easier assembling the top will be, if you like to avoid like fabrics touching.
- Keeping the blocks the same height but various widths make for an interesting look that is still easy to put together.
