I have always wanted to learn to make a quilt, but the thought of doing it all by hand was very daunting. So I decided to give machine quilting a whirl. And I also did a "cheater" quilt. I did not piece squares together like a traditional quilt. I used one large rectangular piece of fabric and just sewed a criss-cross design, by first sewing parallel lines in one direction, and then more parallel lines across the first set. I made my own bias tape from a great tutorial here and also learned how to bind it.
