I have this magazine, and would like to make the Plus Sign quilt that is on the cover, shown here...
but the directions say to cut all individual sqs ... I think there is an easier way to make this, right? It says to cut 281 sets of 5--2.5in sqs from assorted prints, then 31 sets of 4--2.5 sqs from scraps, and 31-- 2.5in from more scraps ... that's crazy! Then to sew in 40 horizontal rows of 39 sqs each. Seems like WAY too much work to me. I'm not good at figuring some of this out, but I think it could be done with rectangles too?
thanks for any advice
