• Tea Time Quilt which I renamed Rainbow Squared Quilt

    If you go to www.jordanfabric.com, open and ask to see their tutorials at the top of page, you should find it, if they still have it.
    Basically it uses 2 1/2 inch strips, five strips sewn together then made into a tube. Using a tube ruler at 7 inches, cut first one side, then the other, this should give you 7 squares from each tube. You end up with two different squares because
    one side you use the stitch line to start and the other on the fold. You have to be careful sewing these squares to gather because they are all cut on the bias, so will stretch. It does make a colorful quilt if you use batiks but could be made with
    regular cotton. I also made my stitch smaller 2.0 when sewing the strips into tubes.
    This is great way of using up left over material and next time I am going to try 6 strip tubes instead of 5, I would have to have a 8 or 9 inch depth on tube ruler. Just make enough squares to make the size quilt you need, then add inner and outer
    border and you are done.
