A fun one block quilt made entirely out of 2.5” strips! OR you can go scrappy if you wish!
80 strips (2 jelly roll strip sets, or straight from your stash) will be enough for 100 blocks for a 60”x 60” quilt.
-Set ONE of 40 strips is prints, colors, a fabric line, a mix of your own, medium to dark tones.
-Set TWO of 40 strips is neutrals, backgrounds, lights, whites, creams,taupes, pastels, a good mix makes for an interesting quilt.
You can expand the quilt by adding additional 2.5” strips to your project palette. For each strip added you need to add equal number of background strip(s). One strip set (print and background) will make 2.5 blocks.
Strips of fabric 2.5” wide are sewn, cut, and sewn again to make this fun block. And let me show you how the Easy Angle Ruler will become a tool you can’t live without to in making accurate half square triangles.
Now gather up your strips because we have some Abacus blocks to make!
