If you're ready to take the plunge into artistic quilting, you'll love Lorraine's shift, trim, and sew approach. Select from a variety of contemporary block designs, sew a stack of them, then trim each to create variations. Once joined, the blocks form stunning visual effects. No-waste approach uses trimmed sections in borders. Use this technique with your own block designs too, or even a traditional block-the possibilities are endless.
