KID QUILT #2 - SPRING-A-LING
For this quilt, I used this collection called "Spring-a-Ling" by Moda. There were forty strips, with only a few repeats. Each strip measured 2.5" x 42". I also used some Kona white.
The pattern for this quilt is called "Stack and Flip" and you can find the tutorial on the Missouri Star Quilting Company youtube channel. The backing is a bright green flannel and was purchased from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts Store. Since I only used 33 strips for the quilt top, I used the remaining 7 strips for the binding, along with some more of the Kona white.
The finished size of the quilt is 52" x 72".
I used Warm and White batting, also purchased from JoAnn. The quilting pattern is called "G Daisies" and it came with my new Quilt Magician. The design is casual and perky, which I think goes with the general feeling of the quilt. The thread I used was YLI white cotton.
Here are some photos of the quilt in process.
The first step was to sew 33 of the strips together, side to side, and then trim the edges so they were even.
After the sides are trimmed, the top is sliced into 3 pieces, the middle piece is flipped, and sewn back together with white strips in between. Then, a thin white border is added.
