Quilt as you go technique--tut is short and sweet with excellent pics. Keep in mind that if you don't want the blocks to look framed you can always make the frame from the same fabric. On my must try list.
Make a quick-to-assemble patriotic picnic throw or cozy cottage twin-size bed quilt from your favorite scrappy assortment of red, white, and blue prints. Fabrics are from the Symphony of Blues and Rhapsody of Reds collections by Jenni Calo for Connecting Threads .  http://connectingthreads.com
