For each block she starts with a 10″ layer cake square and a 5″ charm square. Rather than cut and stitch pieces together, she cleverly layers and folds the fabric, only sewing to cover raw edges (and not cutting at all).
The result is a quickly finished block that is super easy to make. This may be the ultimate block construction method for beginning quilters, and anyone who wants to finish up a quilt in just a few hours.
Peg then goes on to demonstrate a number of blocks and quilt configurations that can be created using this method. It’s extremely versatile and offers many design options. Some of the blocks even have a bit of a 3D effect (perfect for kids’ quilts!).
Play with arranging one or more of these easy block styles into a quilt. Peg shows several examples in the following video to get you started.
