Strip Quilt FREE Pattern
This is another great project to use some fun fat quarters on? This pattern gives you directions on how to make a fast quilt from baby size all the way to a king size quilt!
Sew you wanna know how much time it's going to take?
About 2 hours for the baby quilt top, the whole quilt took me a full day
Basting, quilting and binding all depends on the level of detail you are wanting to go. For this quilt I machine quilted 1/2" on either side of all the long quilt seams.
Finished product size: Approximately 38" x 52"
Tips to avoid the dreaded seam ripper:
-Plan, plan and plan some more!
-Before cutting the strip in the recommended lengths, use a tape measure and see where the short seams will fall within each strip, and the adjacent strips.
-Since I used directional fabric, I ended up cutting random 6-8" pieces out of the long strip so the short seams didn't match in the final quilt. I then added these short pieces to the end of strips in the quilt.
Maybe you don't have fat quarters to use, but plenty of scraps - this could be a fun way to use them up in an afternoon!
You can always buy fat quarter bundles in the shop too!
