These 6" blocks for a lap size quilt work up quickly with my on top method of foundation paper piecing using an Ultimate Seam Guide. No turning the paper over, holding it up to a light, or wasting chunks of fabric. Choose a variety of fat quarters in 4 color families to make the quilt shown, or use a large selection of leftover fabrics for a scrappier look.
Annis Clapp has had a passion for sewing since she was a child, and has been designing and making quilts and related items since the mid '70s. While making her son's wedding quilt in 1998-99 she became interested in quick piecing techniques. The discovery of rag quilting in 2001 led to 3 quilt books published by Leisure Arts. She has had quilts featured in McCall's Quick Quilts and Ricky Tims' Kool Kaleidoscope Quilts. Her desire for speed and accuracy in her piecing skills led to the development of the Ultimate Seam Guide in 2003 which is now available through C & T Publishing.
