I had another striped fabric at home and decided to see if I could remember what I learned in Dawn’s class. Here is a picture of the fabric:
and here is a close up that is close to what the squares looked like before the diagonal cuts:
and here is the finished quilt top:
Pretty cool, huh? It measures 61″x75″ which is a nice sized throw, an used up almost every bit of the four yard piece of fabric. I cut it all out and sewed it in two days. Woo Hoo! Now I have to find something for the back and get it quilted. Oh yeah, there are three errors in the construction. I am debating whether to correct them or not. Can you see them?
I really like this technique and will be on the look out for more striped fabrics to use it on.
