White strips are sewn in between
each colorful strip.
in any width that you want.
I started with 9 strips, same length,
See where I cut off the top!
You can get 2 strips from one apron string.
To make each colorful strip -
(sorry no pic), Sew 8 strips together
lengthways side by side.
Finger press them open.
This makes one large block.
Now, with a ruler mark off
one inch strips all the way across
the 8 blocks.
This gives you 8 different colored blocks
that are sewn together.
Be careful because they will come
apart very easily!!!
If they do start coming apart, do
Take a white strip, lay it on top
of the colored strip and sew down
Sew another white strip down the
other side, this way, that
colorful strip does not fall apart.
Do not worry how
skinny or fat the strip becomes.
Repeat with another colorful
strip, then a white strip.
Repeat the process until
you get 5 colorful strips sewn together.
Make sure that you end
with a white strip.
If the quilt top is not wide enough
for your bed, just add as many
and as wide of a strip you need for
I used skinny strips - but you can
use as wide as you want.
Must have one that is different.
