A Super Easy Quilt to Make in Whatever Size You Want!

Leftover fabric strips and attention to values create a stunning quilt. This is a great project for making a dent in your scraps and stash. Jelly roll strips and fat quarters will work nicely if you don’t have enough scraps on hand.

The blocks used in this quilt are 8″ square, but you can change that to whatever pleases you. You also can adjust the number of blocks to produce a quilt of the size you want.

Make the strips narrow, or wide. Make them all the same width or vary them. It won’t matter if they don’t match up once the blocks are sewn together. The important thing is to arrange the strips and blocks according to value (light to dark) so the overall pattern appears.

Once the blocks are made you’ll have many design options depending on how the blocks are arranged.

Needless to say, this is a super easy quilt to make. Just be careful not to stretch the triangular blocks along the bias edges. Handle them gently and follow the tips in the tutorial and you shouldn’t have any problems.

While there is not an exact pattern, Leanne at She Can Quilt shares how to make the 8″ blocks like those in her quilt (shown above).

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.
