Instead of seaming, try join-as-you-go. Not only is there no sewing, this method gives you a mock cable effect! Whether working garment pieces or different colored strips for an afghan or even a pillow, rug or handbag, add this easy, decorative bit and infuse some glorious color. This is one of those “why didn’t I think of this?” type of techniques. It looks way more complicated than it really is. Bang for your buck is when something looks complex but is simple to do. Join a new piece to the left of an existing piece and to the right of an existing piece. Join shaped pieces and see how easy shaping can be incorporated in the cabled join.
