Rock Around the Block, part two

I realized when looking at my last blog, I had not explained I was using the strip piecing technique to make the checker blocks.  This cuts down sewing and cutting a lot.

With strip piecing, long strips are sewn together, then cut into small pieces to sew back together.

Sew strips of background and color together

Cut 1 1/2" pieces off strips to sew together for checker block

Add triangles and rectangles to make blocks

Sew different colors together to make large block
After adding sashing and borders this is the quilt top.

Now it is ready for quilting.

Thanks for stopping.
