    This is a variation of a quilt I saw in Summer 2010 Quick Quilts magazine. The concept can be adapted to any size your creative
    brain chooses. I am starting with 4" strips, about 42 " long, prewashed, starched, pressed.

    Sew the strips together however you want them

    Stitch the bottom to the top to make a tube

    Slice the tube into 4" strps/loops.

    Now open one seam of each loop, the lst on the 1st, the 2nd on the 2nd, etc.

    Open up your strips to see the pattern & sew together!

    Yes! This is for a teenage girl in a group home. Nothing wrong with choosing a quick design. The fabrics are quite beautiful and it looks terrific.

    Thanks for the great instructions. This has always confused me and I think I have finally got it. The pictures really helped. It's going to be a really pretty quilt. Great job.

    You can use this tute for cutting out bargello color strips too. All one has to do is very the width of the cut strips after you make the tube.

    That's so pretty. I went to a wedding in Mt Carmel IL and ended up chatting with some nice women quilters in a church basement who taught me to make this type of quilt. I made a baby quilt of flannel, so much fun and it was quick!

    I have one "tube" left over. How I do I make this into a bargello? Just slice different widths & shift a little to sew back together?

    Great tute, I'm going to try it in the near future.
    Close to the Trip Around The World Quilt, strips arranged a little different.
    Thanks for showing us.

    This is such a great idea, especially for a newbie like me!
    Just the first square would be really great to make for a lap blanket for shut-ins, etc....

    Thanks for this idea!

    This is PERFECT for my son. He's been complaining that I make quilts for everyone except him. I just couldn't think of something that didn't look "girly," if you know what I mean. And guess what? Red and black are his favorite colors!

    For a twin-sized quilt, would you happen to know how much of 8 different fabrics I'd need, given the 4-inch squares in your quilt?
