Striped fabrics can not only jazz up a quilt, they can also do a lot of the work for you. For example, stripes can substitute for pieced segments, saving lots of time and effort.
In the following video, Sherri Driver from National Quilters Circle shows many creative ways to use stripes in quilts. She also discusses how to match stripes at corners (or not) and provides many other tips for incorporating stripes into quilts.
She also demonstrates how to sew together strips of striped fabric, and how to match stripes when making a simple block.
Sherri provides a lot of helpful information that will have you looking at striped fabrics in a whole new way.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
