First task at hand, determine an accurate 1/4" seam with the fabrics, thread, and machine you're working with.
Cut them apart, twist and sew them back together, and this is what you get. Strip Twist. I used a jelly roll for my strips. I have a whole tub of 2 1/2" strips that I could have used but I've also had this jelly roll for about 5 years and was waiting for the "perfect project" to use it on. Actually I had 2 jelly rolls and I'm going to add to this to make it a full size quilt.
Another one of my BFF's Angela and I stayed for the Abilene Quilters Guild Meeting where Bonnie presented a truck show and lecture. She is so funny and so creative. I learned even more at the lecture and she has now created a monster in me for scrap quilts. Now, I know what you're thinking. You probably remember I don't do scrappy quilts. I have to plan them out but I think I can do this Bonnie's way. I'm going to give it my best shot anyway. I'll post pictures from the trunk show and lecture tomorrow.
