Use many multicolour fabrics randomly. Cut oblongs 3.5 inches x 6.5 inches (¼ inch seam allowances throughout).
Start in the centre and work outwards, sewing longer strips together before attaching to the previous section.
You can do as many rounds as required (making it oblong or square) and then add:
- plain border – 2.5inch for the layout below
- strippy border – 3.5 inch for the layout below
- plain border – 2.5 inch for the layout below and then bind
- or use a plain border in between the multi patterned borders
This is a very quick quilt to make, and can easily be made in a day.
Cut 9 x 6½” squares of novelty fabric or similar
Cut 9 x 6½” squares of plain fabric
Cut 2 strips 36 x 6½” of contrasting plain fabric
Construction (use ¼ inch seam allowance throughout)
Make 3 strips from the 6½” squares. For each strip join 3 novelty and 3 plain squares, alternating them as you go. Press each strip.
Join the long strips in between the 6½” square strips so they are alternating. Press the top.
Sandwich together and quilt in your preferred quilt pattern. Add a binding.
