In this case very patriotic red, white and blue. Another of those quilts that will use 2 ½” strips.
Great for Beginners too
With just 3 fabrics to choose this is a very easy quilt to select fabric for – all you have to make sure is that there is a contrast between the three – and while it looks complicated – almost a double knot effect – you will see that it is very straightforward – simple even. AND even the seam allowance doesn’t matter – as long as you are consistant.
Possible Jelly Roll Option
If you are using a pre-cut strip roll/jelly roll – just make sure that you have selected fabrics with a contrast in them each time. Obviously the quilt will have a more scrappy look to it than the one shown in the workshop.
This quilt was inspired by a book Jennie enjoyed years ago written by Trudie Hughes, who was one of the early pioneers of using the rotary cutter and strip piecing.
