As much as I enjoy patchwork projects, there comes a time when you need a patchwork project without the hassle or the work (lazy me!!).
Let me introduce you to a couple of patch-ready-fabrics in my stash
*note - doing patchwork from scratch is a rewarding process,
please do not give up on it all together*
1. Type - Japanese cotton (soft)
The colour combo (brown, pink and yellow) easily makes this print unisex
All you have to do is quilt along the lines to get the patch effect
Alternative - Combine the larger squares with thicker white borders and use the smaller rows of cowboys either for thinner second border or as the binding
2. Type - LECIEN fabric (left) Japanese cotton (right)
The colour combo (brown, pink) combined with cute prints on both fabrics would make a lovely quilt for a little girl
Use the fabric on the right as centre panel and add LECIEN fabric on the left as the border, quilt the squares to get the patch effect
Alternative - Cut big squares (from 4 small squares in the LECEIN fabric), measure and do the same with the Japanese cotton fabric, patch and quilt (you get to save time as you do not have to patch each smaller squares but end up with the same effect)
Do you have other time saving techniques that you use??
