I'm coming out of the wood-work! Seriously been busy sewing, having a baby and trying to sew! Anyway, before this one popped I promised my older one that I would make him a quilt. So here it is, I thought I'd show you all how I made it just in case anyone is interested. Its not done so you'll have to wait to see the finished product. The picture above is just the middle part laid out.
Step 1: cut out squares
The colorful prints were 6x6, I basically used whatever leftover scraps plus a few purchased pieces that he picked out.
The blacks are 6x8, I just didn't want to have to line up any seams. These were all purchase for this project.
Step 2: sew the strips, I serged them then ironed the seams
Step 3: measure your strips, then cut the backing and batting in 6xlength of strips
I used Warm and Natural for the batting and a print cotton fabric for the backing
