Scrappy quilt as you go baby quilt

bags of strips

I had a bag of strips (different widths) that I decided to use to make a baby quilt.  I thought that I would use up most of the strips in the bag but I still have lots of strips for another baby quilt.  I made 16 squares of batting and backing (about 11″ squares).  I used left over pieces of flannel for the backing.

I still have lots of flannel scraps left for another quilt.  I used the same blue fabric for the center stripe on each square.  I decided to just use blue and green strips for this quilt.  I trimmed the squares to about 10.5″.  I used green and blue strips to piece the squares together using quilt as you go technique (see Leah Day video quilt as you go on you tube).  I just found another quilt as you go technique on Missouri Star Quilter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79Tm7oyIDNo).  There are lots of resources on youtube with tutorials on quilt as you go.  Give it a try. The finished quilt is a more than 40″  x 40″ square.  I think I will be making a yellow and green quilt next.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
