I’m back to work on the grad quilt. After I placed the rectangles, I added the strips.

And I’m nearly finished piecing these blocks. I wish I had made the strips narrower, but that’s a lesson for next time.

In case you are interested, I cut the original rectangles 9 inches by 10 inches. The rectangles were cut 2 inches by 10 inches. I cut the Large rectangles into two pieces by making a slice 3 inches from one side and inserting the strip. Easy peasy!

Have a great day!

    I like your quilt and the dimensions of the strips look good to me. It’s very masculine and modern. I’m sure your grad will love it!
