STRIP AND QUILT AS YOU GO

A great technique for all those left-over strips. Two techniques will be demonstrated, random multi-coloured strips on angle and one colour strips sewn in a round. We will also use scraps of fabric, batting and backing for borders and backing. Blocks are quilted as they are sewn. The sashing is the “trick.”
