    Need easy 2.5" strip patterns!

    I'm still reorganizing my sewing room. Boy, I've found things I haven't seen for years! I've also found lots and lots of 2.5" strips; didn't know I had so many, lol. I would like to know what are some of the strip patterns you have tried? (One pattern I don't want is the one that is just long strips sewn together.) Thanks in advance for your help.

    Try Moda Bakeshop. Sweet Menagerie is a very easy pattern. I'll try to upload a picture, but my computer hasn't been very cooperative this morning.

    The Lintotts have some great books with 2.5 inch strip patterns. They are easy and pretty. The books are reasonable on Amazon.

    I recently did a sewing studio clean up too! It was like finding a hidden treasure! LOL! Try these patters:

    I bought one of their books and they give great directions!
    Be sure to post your pics, I get the best inspiration from my fellow quilters!

    Thanks for the responses. I'm getting ready to leave to babysit our youngest DGS for a few hours; I'll check these sites when I return.

    You can also use them for binding. The binding doesn't have to be all the same fabric, and scrappy binding can look very cool, depending on the center of the quilt.

    I'm making a Pineapple Blossom quilt with some of mine. I got the pattern from Bonnie Hunter from her www.quiltville.com web sight. She has lots of scrappy quilts that use 2 1/2" strips.

    I have done two quilts now that were the hidden wells pattern. I will see if I can post the one i did with a jelly roll. depending on how many repeats you have of the strips will make the top look different. http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...t-t174943.html this used one jelly roll but if you have two or three of the same or similar colors it would look and be better. hope this helps.

    This website has some great patterns that you might be able to use with the 2.5 in strips.

    The strip tube ruler by Cozy Quilts Designs has many ways to use up your 2.5" strips or any other sizes you have.

    Bento Box is quick and easy ... and spectacular when done. It doesn't have to be Asian fabrics, I've seen them done in batiks, two colors, etc.

    I use strips to make 9 patch quilts, and almost everything else. I love quick piecing with strips.
