Rainbow Strip and Flip Variation

Oct 23, 16 Rainbow Strip and Flip Variation

Posted by in All Posts, Featured, Quilting

A couple of years ago I bought a jelly roll of Kona Cotton Solids (from Robert Kaufman) online from Craftsy.  I had planned to use the jelly roll to make a Strip and Flip Quilt on Cluck Cluck Sew blog.  On Friday I got an unexpected call from work saying that I did not need to work.  Yay!  With nothing else planned for the day, I decided to sew this quilt top. The jelly roll came with 2 strips of 20 colours.  I decided to leave out 3 colours (black, white & cream) and sewed up each 17 colours together.  This gave me two halves to join together at the end.  Unfortunately I made a BIG mistake when I came to cut my quilt top halves to flip.  I was supposed to cut the quilt top halves into 8″, 5″ and 30″ width sections.  Because I folded each quilt top halves in half to square off, I accidentally cut 2 lots of 8″ width sections and 2 lots of 5 ” sections!!! To solve this mistake, I decided to cut more white strips and flip both 5″ width sections.  So instead of making a Strip and Flip quilt, I made a slight variation of it!       I kind of like it but I am now tempted to make another Strip and Flip quilt.  Time to go shopping for more jelly rolls :).   Quilt Top Details: Current size is 48″ x 66″ Pieced by me Jelly roll of Kona Cotton Solids (from Robert Kaufman)   I’ve decided to link up with Young Texan Mama’s Sew Cute Tuesday (25th October 2016)....
