|Here is a simple way to use up leftover fabric. Cut it
into strips, sew them together, and make a linear quilt. You can make it very
scrappy, or you can use all of the same color. The picture below is part
of a quilt made from mostly green fabrics. It also uses novelty prints.
Greens are one of the easiest colors to blend. Blue is the hardest.
This is a great quilt technique for both new and scrappy quilters. If you
like, you can sew the strips right on the batting and backing, so you quilt as
you go - as you attach each strip.
