FREE Tutorial - Diagonal Strip Quilt by Jen Allyson

Simplicity can be attractive, and this quilt is proof!  Jen Allyson of The Project Girl created this excellent tutorial to walk us through the steps of creating a diagonal strip quilt.  Quilts like these are fast and easy to create, and as you can see, the results are beautiful!  More from Jen:

"Strip quilting with the Quilt As You Go method is pretty much the only way I can quilt these days. It’s such a quick and easy way to make a simple quilt, and be done with it in a matter of hours. I call it my 2-nap quilt, as I really can only quilt when my boys are napping, and a strip quilt takes about 2 nap times to get done start to finish. And lets be honest… I haven’t had much time to practice extensive quilting techniques, so this is pretty much as good as it gets for me right now.

"Here’s a quick tutorial on my diagonal strip quilt, it’s a little bit more tricky than a standard strip quilt. First step is super easy – I cut 5″ strips out of all of my fabrics – You can do this with any size strip – a jelly roll would save you time on the cutting, but take more time on the sewing. I like the 5″ because I can cut all the left-over strips in half and use the 2.5″ for binding strips.

"All the fabric is from my new line with Riley Blake Fabric - Lost & Found 2."
