To use up some of her scraps, my Sister-In-Law, Melanie decided to make a Scrappy Strip Patchwork quilt. She took pictures of a block she made to share with all of us in case we would like to make one too! Thanks Melanie. This is one I can definitely do!
For this quilt block Melanie used 2 inch strips of scrap fabric left over from previous projects. She chose to use solids and prints. You can use whatever you choose.
For your strips of fabric you have two choices. You can tear or cut your fabric. To tear, just use the scissors to cut a tiny snip and rip from one end to the other. No worries, It will tear straight.
You can make your strips of fabric any width you wish. If you are using scraps your lengths will vary.
Here is a quick size reference for you:
Twin size is 63" x 87"
Full is 78" x 87"
Queen is 84" x 92"
and King is 100" x 92"
Good luck and thanks Mel for showing us this quick and easy quilt block.
I am sharing this at Homestead Barn Hop.
