Let’s just admit it. I’m the kind of quilter/crafter/seamstress who thinks patterns are more like guidelines and rules are meant to be broken. I work by instinct and intuition more than by rules. It works for me. But I understand this fly-by-the-seat-your-pants process isn’t for everyone.
Whether I’m making mug rugs or scrappy blocks, I just start cutting and sewing. For some of you, the mere thought of this is enough to give you hives. For me, totally liberating. Perhaps I can entice you to play along with me by giving you a template to calm your fears and ease your mind.
Cut your pieces out pursuant to the following diagram. (Click on the pictures to enlarge.)
Now start sewing.
See, that wasn’t so hard, was it? Ready to make more? If you do make some, please share pictures. I’d love to see them.
