Fast, Fun, Waste-free quilting: Hopscotch
Create fast, fun, waste-free quilts with this video workshop by Anne Baxter and justhands-on.tv – as an ebook!
Anne demonstrates how to make a couple of quilts (see below) she has created with this attractive Hopscotch design, a simple block which uses just 12 fat quarters.
One version has a real country feel, with its fabrics in similar tones. The other quilt uses shirting fabrics with added sashing. For a smaller quilt, make fewer blocks. Bear in mind that Anne uses some of the pieces to create her lovely patchworky border.
Anne guides you through all the cutting – which is done through a pile of six fabrics using the rotary cutter to its best advantage. She has a great tip about drawing the cutting diagram on the top piece of the fabric pile, so you know you are going to get all the pieces out. (For the version with shirting fabric, Anne spent some considerable time cutting the pieces separately.)
The sewing is straightforward because the pieces are very simple. Anne shows how to chain piece the seams. Try not to overthink the colour selection; just pick up a piece and sew!
