    help stripe fabric

    I saw and idea or pattern awhile ago about using a stripe fabric for a quilt and when you cut and sew back together it looks like you have used a lot of fabrics. I of course cannot find it now that I want to use it. If you have any ideas it would be great, Thanks

    I'm not sure which pattern that would be, but if it was me, I would try Jenny's tube quilt:

    You could use one wide strip of plain/tot fabric and one wide strip of striped fabric.

    This is a really cute striped quilt but may not be the one you are talking about.

    ​Was it the amazing Card Trick quilt that someone posted done with stripes? There was also one of squares pieced with striped fabric.

    Go google and type in quilt with striped fabric and quilt blocks with striped fabric. You will see lots and lots of ideas.

    Thanks for your reply's. The tube method will probably work great, Just can't seem to find what I remember.

    Isn't it the bummers when you remember seeing something interesting and can't find it again. Frustrating!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
