Easy quilt pattern

I've read that some of you are making quilts from the turning twenty
pattern and the Yellow brick road. I was watching my tape of last
week's Simply Quilts episode and they showed another fast, easy quilt
pattern.

All you do is cut fabric across the widths from 2 1/2 inches to 6 inches
wide. Lay the strips out in a nice pattern and sew them together. Trim
the edges even and you have a top.
Borders can be added to make the quilt wider/longer.
Sounds like a great way to turn smaller pieces of fabric into quilts
quickly.

They could also be set diagonally, if you are making more than one and would like them to be different. . In message , Marcella Peek writes

After I saw that show last year, I made a couple quilts like this for gifts. It is a great way to quickly piece together a "conversation" print with complementary fabrics that suit a person's hobby or interests. I made them so I could use a print fabric for the back that didn't have to be pieced. The dimensions I worked out use the width of a standard bolt minus the selvages by a length that is appropriate, i.e +/-42"x60" max. for a wheel chair lap quilt. Here's a link to my Webshots pictures.

This would be easy to do as a "quilt as you go" quilt. Spread out the backing right side down, then the batting on top of that. Lay your first strip on the batting, right side down. Lay the second strip wrong side up on top of the first and stitch 1/4" from the edge. Flip that second strip over, repeat with the third, etc. Trim the edges and bind.

Absolutely, Julia! I hadn't thought of trying to do one that way, but you're right. It would be a great way to whip up a few quilts over a weekend. Especially one that dosen't need batting. A hurricane relief quilt would be a good one. I often have so much going on in my life that I can't squeeze in another quilt project, but this makes me think.... :-) Gina in CO

You can also do this using batting. Just spread the batting out over the backing smoothly and continue as described.
