This is a quilt pefect for using up all those 2.5″ strips you’ve been saving. Jelly rolls work,but what I’d really love is not for anyone to have to go buy anything. We’ve got more scraps than we know what to do with, right?
As you prepare for this workshop, plan on spending a bit of time each day pressing and cutting your scraps into 2.5″ strips. You can plan a color theme if you want, or you can go “kitchen sink” and throw in everything! Please include lights, mediums and darks in this quilt for interest.
Strips NEED to be at least 9″ long…..or 18″ long (2 sub cuts per strip set) So this works really well to cut strips from Fat Quarters too. Maybe you’ve got some that you’ve been waiting for the “RIGHT” project to use them?
