This is a fun quilt. Simple for a beginner and fast for someone with a huge stash. You can use your own 2 1/2 " strips or use a jelly roll. Tip: You will have better accuracy if you cut your own strips. Jelly rolls are not always so accurate. Simple technique for this quilt - Mainly flippy corners. The pattern we will use is Kaleidoscope by Lella Boutique. ($9)
Ready for something a little different? This project will give you a chance to build skills in accurate piecing and perfect points. Who doesn't want perfect points, flat blocks and straight borders?
This quilt is another good stash buster so start going through your fabrics again choosing two colors you like together and that have good contrast. This design uses 2 1/2" strips for the pieced blocks.
We will be using the Creative Grids 60 Degree Triangle 8-1/2in Quilt Ruler # CGRT60 $18.95.
