For those of you who don't know me, I have a crazy piecing method that's fast fun and fabulous, that I first used when I designed as Buggy Barn, and which I now continue as One Sister. It's a stack, cut, shuffle, and piece-it-all-back-together method and is lots of fun! And I do have demos on my homepage: just hover over the DEMO tab and click to select which demo you'd like to view. (Any of my books with "Crazy" in the title uses this method of piecing). I selected this Sew Crazy Stars block from the Crazy Favorite Things book and I think it's a great way to showcase Shayla's Good Vibes Only fabric! I added a black and white checkerboard sashing and binding that just makes those blocks pop! Some serious good vibes :-)
A candy cane binding is a fun way to finish a quilt, whether its a red and white striped binding for Christmas, or this fun black and white combo! And its a snap to make! Here's how I do it:
1. Cut 2-1/2" strips of your two color choices.
2. Stitch the strips together lengthwise, alternating colors, black, white, black, white to make a strip set with about 8 strips.
3. Cut your bias binding strips as shown below:
