STRIP TEASE TUTORIAL
36 light jelly roll strips. You can use from different fabrics in your stash; however, I used the same fabric throughout. If you use one fabric, you will need 2-3/4 yards of fabric to cut your strips.
9.5” or larger square up ruler. I’m using Omnigrid but any brand will work as long as there is a diagonal line running from one corner to the other in at least one direction.
Step 8: Layout time! You need to decide what size quilt you will make. I recommend 12, 15 or 16 block layouts. Here are some possibilities with blocks laid out from 4 strip sets.
I made my Great Blocks one at a time and returned it to the design wall after sewing. To make the Great Block, sew top two sections together and sew bottom two sections together. Press seams open.
But what about the scraps I have leftover?
I found a few layout possibilities with the remaining pieces. I laid them all out before sewing so I had a plan. Here are a few of the arrangements. There are subtle differences in each one.
After you have sewn the blocks together, trim them to the largest size blocks you can, trimming off the selvages. Each block will be a different size.
This was a project for my scrap quilting club. To see more variations, view these posts. You will have to scroll down as different participants brought various tops to the meetings for show-n-tell.
