It does NOT have a border, they just mounted that for the picture Smile

QQP180508-2

It measures 30” x 40” and is made with a 2 1/2” strip set from Island Batik called Paisley Dot Bright strips.

and then I used the chisel die (carefully) from the 8” Accuquilt QUBE companion set or you can use a template provided in the magazine!

(of course I used warm and natural batting too!)

You can get the pattern here, if you don’t want the magazine

I do have ONE extra magazine that I’ll sign and mail to one lucky person Smile

I like to both work with and collect 2-1/2" strips

Gene Black said...

I have a small collection right now. But I do love working with the 2 1/2" strips.

Carla said...

Congratulations, that is a beautiful quilt and no one would know if was made with precuts. I tend to collect them, but very seldom use them. Again, congrats my dear!

Barb said...

That is so awesome....congrats!!!

Vicki in MN said...

Yeah for the cover girl!! Very nice.

Barb Neiwert said...

Oh, how exciting for you! it's perfect for the cover, so bright and cheery. I love cutting up 2.5" strips for future projects. One just never knows when you'll need them!

Susan-Sharon Passmore said...

I mostly collect 2 1/2" strips, but I have aspirations of working with them! (Eventually, when I'm finished looking at them with admiration.)

SusanB said...

Congratulations, cover girl! I saw the quilt on the McCall's Quilting blog yesterday and pinned it to one of my Pinterest boards. All the while I was thinking, "I know the designer, I read her blog!"

How exciting for you! Congratulations!! I have to admit I have collected my fair share of jelly rolls. I need to step up and start using them... I just hate to cut into those beautiful rolls though!

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

Congratulations!!!!! Nice quilt. I like 2.5" strips, but, I like to pre-wash all my fabrics, so, I tend to cut them myself. I've had too many problems with unwashed fabrics bleeding. I only use precuts with a dark background.

Judy said...

Beautiful! Congratulations!

Kathy H said...

Congratulations on your cover. I do like using the 2.5 inch strips.

Kathleen said...

Congratulations on the magazine cover! It’s a great quilt and really simple!

Melody said...

Congrats!!!

Judy1522 said...

Congratulations your quilt is beautiful! I do like using 2 1/2" strip but I don't buy them I make them from fabric I have leftover from other projects.

Debbie said...

I love this quilt, Bea! I've never bought a set or roll of strips. Always just cut them myself from too much stash!

Sharon Aurora said...
