If you're like us and you love geometric designs, add a little three-D to your next project with this technique from Patti Carey! She incorporates an excellent idea in fabric (more about STRIP-R below) to make this quilt super easy. This design is featured in the Oct/Nov issue of McCall's Quick Quilts, and is a great project for any level of quilter, but for this post, we are focusing on her technique. More from Patti:
"For this quilt, I wanted to do something easy, since it is McCall’s Quick Quilts, so the STRIP-R fabric from the Ambience collection made this quilt super easy. I also wanted to make something that was kind of modern – I joined a modern quilt guild recently, and it has me rethinking the style of quilts that I make. With this in mind, I included a lot of background (negative space).
"This quilt, surprisingly, uses only 2 fabrics: the white background and the STRIP-R fabric. What is a STRIP-R? It is a fabric with twenty-one 2” wide lengthwise strips across the width. I pitched the idea of this fabric design to Northcott’s Creative Director Deborah Edwards, and, happily, she was able to bring my idea to fruition, including them in a large selection of current and upcoming Northcott collections."
