Another Sunday and another scrappy idea for using up those strips. This is the classic Chinese Coins quilt – rows of strips sometimes separated by plain rows as here (or you could use a print)
or sometimes just rows of strips. The strips can be all the same width as above or you can use strips of different widths as in this example.
Whichever one you choose to make they are really quick and easy – join strips of the same length (you choose) together until you have a strip the length you want your quilt to be, Make more strips – as many as you want and either sew them together or sew them to alternate plain strips until the quilt is the width you want.
All you have to do then is quilt it! If you’ve used plain strips then you can treat it as a ‘strippy’ quilt and stitch a different border-type design in each strip or if its lots of strips, as in the second example, you can use an allover pattern or treat it as a wholecloth quilt and quilt it from the plain ‘back’.
