Shoo Fly Quilt
The piecing for the binding and the outer white border is obvious; so I can ignore that.
This works; however, when the blocks are joined, small black pieces end up being sewn together to make larger black pieces. Can I redesign the piecing so that they are large black pieces to start with? Ditto the small white pieces.
What if I allow blocks of varying sizes?
I can divide the quilt into 7 columns and 7 rows.
The result is fewer pieces to cut and sew. This should speed things up quite a bit.
However; there are also a greater variety of blocks to keep track of (10 compared to 5) and that will slow things down a little.
All things considered, I like this piecing better. But there is nothing wrong with doing it the first way if someone would rather make Shoo Fly blocks.
