I mentioned I’m doing a Lego Quilt, based on instructions from Tonya Ricucci. I am lucky to have changed to a 4-day-a-week job, so I spent my first Friday off getting all the strips done. I put them up on the design wall as I pieced them to be sure I was getting a good balance of colors and values.
Tonya’s instructions say to cut 1-1/2″ strips and join them to make the rows in each block. I have a lot of strips, sorted by width, so I tried the 1-1/2″ strips first, joining them end-to-end and cutting into the lengths I needed.
Now I have 420 strips, enough to make my 42 blocks (finishing 10″ each) for a 60″ x 70″ quilt. This will be my next leaders-and-enders project. Here are all the strips laid out ready to go! Stay tuned! I think it will be fun to see it come together!
