I book marked this thanks
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Thanks for the great tute, and for sharing with us.
I have a jelly roll and I'm anxious to try making it into a lap quilt. Now I know how to do it. Thank you very much. Now....will you tell me how to finish my other projects so I can start on this one? ;(
Has anyone made one using 20 strips for a baby quilt? Or would you make the 40 strips and cut in half? I make charity quilts and this would be a great pattern.
You can use half the strips, but the stripes will run up and down rather than side to side.Originally Posted by Kitty Yates
Here is the math:
20 x 40 = 800"
stitch in half, the strip is now 4.5" x 400"
next step will create a piece that measures 8.5" x 200"
next 16.5" x 100"
final 32.5" x 50"
with the strips being vertical rather than horizontal.
This is also assuming that your starting strips are 2.5"
This is my first ever quilt top done using this tutorial. Thanks so much. I made a small quilt top so I can practice FMQ on my Bernina 1530. I've been sewing for many years but I'm new to quilting. This will go to my doggie when I'm done practicing.

Thank you for sharing this! What an excellent idea!
Hi, using my phone to search. Not going well. Could someone post how many strips and different prints I would need to make a nice baby quilt and a matching sweatshirt vest? New grandbaby in Oct. At the hardware store, before the fabric store. Thanks so much!
