Any Way You Slice It
Working on my own crazy version of Any Way You Slice It by Denyse Schmidt. I'm not following the pattern in her book, since I can't stand using templates if it's not absolutely necessary.
Here's how I do it instead. (and it's much faster!) I'm trimming my finished blocks to 7", so I cut my blocks to 9". Cut five - 9" blocks. Stack them up and cut through all five layers. Make your lines as straight or wonky as you want, just make sure you end up with five sections. Now sew them together, switching them around so that one fabric is not in the same block twice.
The only down side to this method is that you will now have 5 blocks that have the same fabrics in them. If you look closely you can see this, but once I have a whole quilt put together, I will be the only one to ever know that little secret! It will look pretty random to the casual observer!
