Default The Tale of a Simiple Strip Quilt

Step 1 Gather scrap pieces together and cut down into strips starting at the widest width available. I began at 5" and ended at 1 1/2".
Step 2 Sew all like widths together end to end into one long strip. This looks like a 2" wide set.[ATTACH=CONFIG]609651[/ATTACH]
Step 3 Begin by laying out a mock up of strip placement, staggering the different widths. Notice there are long strips of the same fabric. These help break up the busy-ness of the top. Measure each strip to the desired length and cut.[ATTACH=CONFIG]609652[/ATTACH]
Step 4 Sew strips together until the desired width. Begin and end each seam with a backstitch to reinforce the seam.[ATTACH=CONFIG]609653[/ATTACH]

Step 5 After top is finished; layer, quilt, and bind. And we are done![ATTACH=CONFIG]609654[/ATTACH]

Now I have these strips leftover. What next? Oh I have a plan...[ATTACH=CONFIG]609655[/ATTACH]

Love that quilt... and great tute! I love quilts made with shirts. They have their own charm. They are always cozy because the fabric is already broken in. You inspire me to hit my shirt fabric bins again.
