After showing the Rabbits! quilt made from Debbie Maddy’s “Usagi” pattern, I lent the quilt itself to a local shop that carries the commercial version of Debbie’s Shibori-dyed fabric. Then I decided to teach the quilt at Studio Stitch in Greensboro, so I made a second quilt using bright Grunge.
I don’t know if you can see it in the close-up below, but I did Quilt As You Go, using Marianne Haak’s method. She has nice video tutorials on her website if you want to learn. I found this method easier than some of the older ones, and neater than the “modern” QAYG method recently publicized elsewhere. As a bonus, the quilt came out nice and square!
