Have you ever been under the gun on a quilt project, desperately looking for any shortcuts you might be able to take but needing to make a great quilt? Leanne of She Can Quilt has been there, and her answer was to go 'wonky' with her blocks, and the result was wonderful! She created this quilt for a friend's baby but also submitted it for a Finish-a-long for her friend Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap. More from Leanne:
"Last week, my spouse casually said, “Remember X, her baby is due in a couple of weeks and maybe we should give her a quilt.” Well, I really like her, and am happy to make a quilt, but that is not a lot of time since I work and mother, and I have quilting commitments and quilting homework and life to do already.
"So, although Rhonda asked me to do a tutorial months ago for the Finish-a-Long, I decided at the last minute that my tutorial would be about wonky or liberated piecing – which was my solution to needing a quilt right now. I will show you how to make a Liberated (emergency) Baby Quilt.
"This style of making blocks is, for me, far faster than traditional piecing and since each block will be different, it makes each quilt a unique one-of-a-kind piece. This quilt uses Shoo Fly blocks on the front and Stars on the back."
