    My first Strip Quilt with a Twist

    For the blocks on the side I just cut squares out of the strips then cut corner to corner and sew back togeather. still need to put bind on. I will get that done today. Hope you like it.

    Putting blocks in there really jazzes up a strip quilt. Good job!

    What a great idea! Adding the blocks at the side really adds a new element to a simple strip quilt.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Pretty quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I'd never seen this pattern either but I love this! You should do a tutorial on it (for people like me who need to have everything spelled out for them... LOL!). What a beautiful quilt! Great job!!!

    Ok Im not good at this but all I did was take 4strips and sew togeather and then I cut the set I just sewn into squares. took two squares and placed them right sides togeather drew aline from corner to corner then sewn a 1/4 in seam on each side of line cut on the line open and press seams to one side. then arranged the new sewn pieces to make a block. for the white I just looked up how to set blocks on point then added strips of blue and red to frame the squares. I thougt it looked like a table runner and almost kept it for that. but added to the quilt cause I needed more width add to sides. I bound it in red today it is now in the wash. It was all strips except the white. Thanks for looking.
