Well, you know who needs a pattern. I've got a baby nephew on the way any day and the quick way to make a quilt is to use a panel. This is a chopped up Dr Seuss panel. I've decided to make it a sort of wonky medallion quilt .
I like to use stripes in a quilt. It makes it look like you've done a lot of work sewing strips together, thus giving more visual texture.
These stripes are great for mitering as they are a little wonky to begin. I'm not a perfectionist quilter, unless I'm entering a quilt in a competition.
