This was such fun and made a real dent in my fabric stash – uses 2 ½” strips (but of any length)
Take the challenge?
Have fun and make a quilt in no time at all; here’s how:
Raid your scrap stash: this can be colour sorted (as mine was) OR just anything that goes together; cut it all into 2 ½” wide strips – any length will do.
Valerie used cotton fabrics, but anything would do – just remember that different fabrics behave differently against each other.
Join them together in one LONG piece with a 45degree angle join – it looks prettier; however if you have a couple or three short pieces of the same fabric these could be joined with the usual straight seam.
Join sufficient pieces together to make the quilt you want – you will be ending up with approx 2″ wide strips across your quilt x ? 40inches maybe?
Load up your sewing machine with thread; get a couple of bobbins prepared; settle down with your favourite music (you can put ours on mute!) and enjoy.
(P.S. do send us pics of what you made!)

love this so much. i have made my first quilt top yesterday and it took me 4 days. i’m trying this next to be done faster and to make more quicker and my moms birthday is a few days away.
