Here’s the story of this quilt: I had some fabric left over after making a table runner for my friend Felicity Walker’s new quilting book. (The book includes a complete tutorial for a quilt-as-you-go table runner.)
Instead of cutting the fabric into small blocks, I decided to make this lap-sized strip quilt. Here’s what I did: I cut the batting and backing first and layered them, then sewed the strips on, one at a time, as if this were a large string quilt. The key to using this method is to make the quilt no wider than the fabric strips.
The whole quilt was done in just a few hours. I don’t know why I’ve never tried this method before. I’m certainly going to use it again.
