I’m starting a new quilt for Covered In Love this week. I love bright colors, but have a big bin full of batiks, mostly jelly roll strips in muted colors. So I dug into them and decided to make blocks. I fold the strip into four and cut off the extra selvage, leaving 10 1/2 inches. With my scores I cut through the folded end and has four equal strips. No rotary cutting needed. Then I chain piece pairs of these strips.
The strips laid out look like a sample below.
I’m planning on about a 60 X 60 or longer top. At the rate this is going, it will probably be finished next week. My bin is now at least one-third empty and the top is looking good already.
