Author Joy-Lily helps readers to put the fun back into quilting. Inside, readers will experience a fresh approach to quilting with two simplified, carefree methods:”sew & flip” and “stack, slice & swap,” where skills like matching seams and measuring are not important. At the end of construction, each piece is trimmed to a uniform size to facilitate mixing and matching into many quilted projects. While matching seams and other traditional quilting skills are unimportant for success with these instructions, the reader will still learn basic quilting techniques, including strip piecing, curved piecing, foundation piecing, sewing on a bias, piece swapping and more, as they work through the blocks. A getting started section explains which rules are necessary and which are optional.
