So, without further ado, the easiest quilt in the world.
For a 38 x 48 inch quilt, you will need 10 width of fabric strips cut 5" wide.
|Lay the tube with the strips vertical, and cut 5" segments. You should get 8 of these.|
|Pick a fabric to be your upper left corner of the quilt. Pick out the stitching ABOVE this fabric, releasing the strip from its tube shape. With the second strip, pick out the stitches between the corner fabric and the one just below it. Continue doing this until all the strip sets are flat, and not tubes.|
|Because you pressed the seams in opposite directions, the strips will nest together nicely when you sew them together! Sew the strips in the order you un-picked them to get the diagonal effect shown. Or, mix 'em up, if you want! They always look cute because of the variety of fabrics.|
|Press well (I pressed mine all to one side because that was fast), sandwich and quilt.|
|All quilted and bound, ready to be loved by a lucky child!|
|I used all sorts of fun prints for this one.|
|I dug into the stash of cowboy prints and made seven of these!|
|More cowboy prints.|
Thanks for looking at this tutorial! I hope you like making this easy quilt as much as I do!
