Strip Quilt Secrets- Unleashed! You have a chance to WIN!

 Diane's new book hit the market a few a short weeks ago and I told her I'd love to be a part of a blog hop to help her promote it. I was happy to be a part of her first book release- her quilts and directions are fun and simple! (We made the house blocks from her first book!) She has given highlights on her blog and I would encourage you to take the time to read it. Check it out HERE.  Her secrets are revealed!!
While browsing through the book I noticed this toward the end. What size strips do you  need for which quilt. There are 2 pages of strip widths. I've saved strips but never really know what to do with them- well, here ya go!

I decided I'd do this quilt. I made the mistake of not reading the directions all the way through before starting. I realized there are 4 different blocks in this quilt! One more reason to love it even more.

I opted to make my centers all red like a traditional log cabin block and use my homespuns to 
make it more masculine.



 Blocks A, B, C, D. 
It would have been easier to make all A blocks, all B blocks, etc. That is how Diane wrote the directions. I wasn't sure how many blocks I was going to make so I opted to cut a bunch of strips and figure it out as I went.
The layout is light-dark-light, looking at the outermost strip.
These are 10" blocks and I made 5 of each. I wanted to make it a bit bigger...

Then I saw this "secret" at the bottom of the page. So, I made 10 more blocks. 

And ended up with this lovely top! It is only 50x 60 so I will add a border, do a little meandering and send it to CA to be given to a Camp Fire survivor.

  2. I have been saving strips for years and have quite the accumulation so I have resolved to make a strip quilt this year. I love your Echo quilt - the homespuns look great in this pattern!

  3. I'm a "seasoned" (lol) quilter and have NEVER saved strips to use, other than jelly rolls, until recently when I started a rainbow scraps quilt using strips---RED is January's color. I must admit it's kind of addictive. I'm loving it! Thanks for a chance to win....looks like a great book.

  10. That back page that tells you the strip size is a wonderful feature - so handy in using up the size of fabric you have. Your quilt turned out so beautifully. I have a few strips, but I prefer to cut for the size of quilt I want to make.

  11. I am visiting from the blog hop from Val's page-this looks like such a fun book for using up scraps-loving your quilt so far thanks for the chance in the drawing

  12. Usually cut my extra yardage into strips then use them for bindins, trip around the world quilts, or string quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great top!! I've got baskets (and baskets) of strings - various widths, early on I made a couple of "jelly roll race" picnic quilts and just finished a half log cabin block quilt using left over holiday fabrics.... looking forward to 2019 being the year of the string ;) Already purchased Diane's book so please don't include me in the drawing!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm starting to amass a strip collection. I'd better find a plan for using them soon. I like the way your quilt turned out. Never thought of using homespuns for that type of block. Now I have a new idea for my homespuns.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't saved many because I really did't know what size to save but looking at the quilts being made I'm starting today. I have to say your finished top turned out much prettier than I first thought it would. I love it. Diane

  19. I do cut strips and I have used them for scrap quilts. This book looks like something I would be interested in. Would love to win it. Thanks, Nancy

  20. I collect my strips. 2.25" I save for scrappy bindings anything less than that width goes in my strip piecing bowl, I try to make a scrappy tote whenever the bowl is overflowing. I've also made a couple of QAYG strip quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I do collect strips in certain widths and they have come in handy and save a lot of time. I would love to win this book. Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I save strips that happen during projects, like the trimmings from the edges of a quilt when it returns from the long-arm quilter and left-overs from projects. Periodically, I use my strips and chunks to make a scrappy project. Right now I have a box of strips and I'm ready to start the strip quilt-a-long!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I save everything but nothing is organized so all I have are baskets and bags of leftovers...mostly hunks and chunks but lots of small pieces too. I'd love to win Diane's new book. Thank you for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do cut remnants from projects into strips and save them in a "Bonnie Hunter style scrap saver system. I need Diane's book to encourage me to use them! lindamae1022@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  25. I keep everything. Periodically i sew strips on paper foundations and store until i find something that moves me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your quilt is awesome! I've been using Bonnie Hunter's Scrap User's System for some time, so I always check my precut bins before I cut from yardage. It's surprising how often I can get quite a way using my precuts. I do the same with HSTs and I love that!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I, too, save everything. I have not made a string quilt yet...these look really fun. Love how yours turned out!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I do save my scraps and cut them into 1.5", 2" and 2.5" using Bonnie Hunter scrap saver. The scraps seem to multiply quicker than I can use them. I would love to win this book. Thank you for the chance! quiltingflo315@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  29. Who wouldn't want that book? Boxes of strips in different widths have been known to be a resident in my quilt room ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I definitely save strips -- 2.5" for bindings, 1.5" for my Dumpster Diving quilts, clean cuts and some selvages for journal covers and pieced strata, etc. Looks like a useful and fun book - thanks for the chance to win a copy!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have boxes of strips and waiting for the right inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Lori! Thanks for the book opportunity. A never ending topic is scraps for sure. I save scraps but do not cut up strips, at least not yet. I think I need to be more productive and accumulate more waste for strips. Enjoy your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I do save strips and strings and feel buried! This’s a good book for using some! Love your homespun top, so cozy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I save selvage strips for friends, and have cut strips for specific quilt projects that are strip-set pieced, but don’t really have just precut strips, so after visiting all the blogs so far, I think I’m really behind!!! May have to remedy this!
    Thanks for sharing, I’d love the book and ideas! And love your new quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Using your strips to comfort a stranger is such a sweet idea. I'm sure it will be treasured! I do save strips and every other manageable scrap that's worth saving! All other pieces go into a pillowcase beneath my table to make dog beds for the Humane Society.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love your Echo quilt! I save strips but the sizes are random because I've always wanted to make a string quilt (or two). However, I do have a few jelly rolls waiting for inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love your new quilt :-) Plaids and lovely homey stripes always warm my heart. This will be an awesome gift for someone starting over. Warmth and love is hard to beat! Thank you for sharing it!
    I have collected strips but mostly for strip piecing. This book looks so useful for ideas I have for my stash as I can cut it up into the strip sizes she uses. I have a cherished stash of homespuns, flannels and plaids that are meant for quilts like hers (and yours).

    ReplyDelete
  45. That is a cool quilt. Yes I do collect strips. I also have a stack of scraps ready to cut into strips and squares.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I cut strips from my leftover fabric, and arrange them by rainbow color. I usually hit these strips for our guild block of the month program, and sometimes for larger projects. The quilt you chose would be wonderful for these strips!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Lori, Good looking quilt. Would like to win the book as I have strips cut but not organized as they should be. Bonnie Hunter has a chart showing what size strips and squares are in her quilts to give you more ideas. Iowa is wet and too warm for Jan,

    ReplyDelete
  48. As a native Californian, first of all I want to say a heartfelt Thank you for your contribution to the Camp Fire survivors. My brother and his wife used to live in Paradise, so this tragedy hit very close to my heart.
    I *do* quilt with strips very regularly, now that I've started making "braid" quilts and especially using strips to make little braid-pattern mug rugs. They are quick and look so cute and use up my random, leftover strips that aren't quite long enough for most patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My string collection is a bit obsessive...and they make wonderful blocks and quilts! They are always the quilts that friends and family claim first.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I save strips in 1.5", 2", 2.5" & 3.5" as well as a basket of variable width strings. When I start a project, I often look first at the strip collection and pull relevant fabrics before cutting into yardage. I love scrappy quilts so the more fabrics there are, the merrier the quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I haven't collected any strips. I too am working on a masculine quilt. The Mr. picked the colors and I've cut all of the hexagons.
    Thank you for sending your creation to Paradise. I sent a box of yardage, precuts and remnants to a quilt shop that is gathering donations for Paradise quilters.

  52. Great booo! I have strips of all sizes ready to be in a quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I like 2 and a half and one and a half inch strips that I can cut on my Sizzix. I often cut the 2 and a half into even segments for things like four patch, but good for rectangle pieces too.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I use all kinds of fabric scrap sizes, none are too particular. I've not worked with Only Strips and would love to start, I've been saving piles of them!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love strips. I use 2-1/2”, 2”, 1-1/2”, and 1” strips. I make log cabin blocks mostly. Would love to win the book! Thanks for the chance to win!

  56. Hi Lori...I have oodles of strips which are begging to me assembled into a quilt! Thank you for the chance to win this sweet book.

    ReplyDelete
  57. What a fun quilt, easy, graphic and uses up those strips. I'm a string piecer vs a strip piecer most of the time and since I have her book already, please don't enter me into the draw.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh, man, do I collect strips!!! But I don't use them regularly! But this book would help me to, for sure. There are so many that I would want to do!

  60. I have enough strips to start a pineapple quilt that’s been on my To Do list forever. Will need to cut more though. Love the homespun quilt. Yes, quite masculine. A perfect gift for a fire survivor. Hope you pick me to win the book.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I didn't used to use them because I cut my own. That said, I have been using them more and more over the past two years. Beautiful fabrics and faster results are a big WIN!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Your homespuns are great in this quilt. I am sure the Camp fire survivors would appreciate this. The book looks like a must have. I hope today is my lucky day!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  65. all the time, making a strip quilt right now

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love scrap quilts and usually buy fabric in 1/2 yard increments. When I get it home, I wash it, iron it, cut it into two fat quarters, fold one and put it in my stash and then cut 1.25" and 1.5" strips off the other piece before folding that and adding it to its mate. I fine I use the smaller strips in most of my work since I usually make small quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I cut strips from my fabrics in a range of frequently used sizes (1.5", 2", 2.5" and 3.5".)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I use a lot of strings 1.25" to 2.50" and love scrappy quilts. I also use a lot of jelly rolls too.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I collect strings, but they are all different sizes in a big bag, not sorted by strip width. I use them for string quilts (which I love) and this past year made a lot of tiny log cabin blocks with them. It seems like magic to me when I get a quilt from a bag of scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I save scraps of various sizes but never saved WOF strips. This book looks great. I guess I could buy fabric and make strips.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I don't really collect strips, I tend to collect scraps but not full strips. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I started making scrap quilts using strips two years ago and now my strips have increased in size by a massive amount. I am a bit anal and have them separated by color. Would love to be inspired to make scrap strips in a way other than the same blocks I have been making over and over. I do have WOF strips because I cut up some of my questionable fabric into various widths and seemed like a good idea at the time?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I have some strips in my collection - love that pattern - now I know what to do with them. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I wouldn’t have guessed there were four blocks in that quilt! I do save strips and try to remember to use them—lol!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have been saving strips but haven’t started using them yet. I really need this book!

    ReplyDelete
  76. The only strips I have are jelly roll strips. Any other strips leftover from a project end up in the big scrap bin with the odd pieces. Now I think I need to start a bin just for strips! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love your quilt! I don't rotary cut so I don't have strips, but I do save selvages and I can see a small Selvage Spools in my future.

  89. I follow Bonnie K Hunter's scrap users system by cutting strips of leftover fabric in sizes 1-1/2, 2, 2-1/2 store in containers for use in scrap quilts and string quilts. Organizers are full and seem to have more than I will need for future quilts. See Bonnie's blog at Quiltville.com for more info.

  90. My first quilt was a strip quilt. A kind stranger overheard me buying expensive quilting tools. She followed me when I left and said "have you bought any fabric"..I replied no. She took my number, called me a week later and asked me to meet at local grocery. Long story short..she filled by car with boxes of beautiful material. I went home went on computer,found instructions for a strip quilt..finished the next day. What a kind lady. I now quilt, and always think of that generous kind quilter in Georgia. Regina Jone
