Need an easy way to use up those fabric scraps? Making a quilt using free-pieced strips is a great way to bust through your scrap bins. Quilter and blogger Nicole Neblett of Mama Loves Quilts shows us how!
The pattern is in the book "Strip Pieced Quilts: Easy Designs from Just Six Fabrics" by Maakie Bakker. Also see the "Take 6" pattern from Australian designer Chris Timmins, who teaches this in her Designing with Strips workshop. Here is a link to the Bakker book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Strip-Pieced-Quilts-Easy-Designs-Fabrics/dp/1564776395/ The name of the quilt in the Bakker book is "Optical Illusion".
