I will attempt to explain my process in this blog post. I truly didn't have much cut off left-overs when putting this quilt together.
Its not shown in a picture, but I filled out the ends so that they would be straight. I think it was a combination of a couple more cuts, plus adding in the bits I had cut off before. (Using up all the pieces!)
So, you see, with the controlled and measured cutting, I was able to achieve a more improv look with out the cutting and slicing of pieces to make them fit. Even as I look at this, there are a few more places that I would like sliced up - but I'm pretty happy with it.
I know that this was a pretty vague tutorial. I didn't realize until I was pretty much done, that I probably should have taken more pictures to explain it better.
If there is a lot of interest, I'll make another quilt and do a better post.
