Think beyond the traditional 6" block cheater quilt; the 1-yard (42” x 36”) canvas is your playground for color, shapes, composition and style.
In the hands of our imaginative designer community, this week’s 1-Yard Cheater Quilt challenge is sure to break outside of the creative box. Will your eye-catching quilt double as a modern wall hanging and offer a sleek aesthetic or maybe you’d like to cater to children? However unique you decide to go, keep in mind that your quilt should not be set to a centered repeat. Before you get started, be sure to head to the blog to see first hand how one designer elevated this traditional quilt template.
