Here's a little quilt (it's about 12" x 12") I made a few months ago using a technique by Rose Hughes that I found in the April/May 2013 issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine. The pieces are cut out using freezer paper templates and sewn together as shown in the YouTube video below. Very easy and fast! Instead of couching the seams with yarn, I zig zag stitched over the seams with a variegated metallic thread. I happened upon this video this morning when taking a break from sweeping and baking (aka non-quilting time) and remembered how satisfying this technique is. Try it and see for yourself!
