Scrappy Strips Baby Quilt

blue and white scrappy strips baby quilt with title.

This quilt is a great stash-buster. It came together super-easily and used up a lot of random pieces that I had.

The method was similar to a jelly roll race quilt, but I didn’t use 2-1/2″ strips.

I took a bunch of 3″ wide strips of all different lengths. I took a variety of whites and blues with a few random greens thrown in.

The finished size is approximately 48″ x 30″.

I sewed them together to make one really long strip. Then I cut the strip in half and stitched those two pieces together.

Then repeated until I got the size I wanted.

Due to the piecing method, the placement of the pieces is totally random.

The quilting is fun. I stitched straight vertical lines with decorative stitches i contrasting thread.

It is not only a great finish for a scrappy quilt, it was also a great way to use up odds and ends of thread.

This was a fun quick project. It would look great in different colour schemes and different strip widths.
