strip quilt


PIECED and quilted BY Erika Nickens



For this vibrant quilt, "Resound", Erika alternated black and white blocks with blocks filled with bright colors. She used a scrappy, string piecing method for this funky lap / throw sized quilt. It would make a really fun baby quilt, too! She quilted it with simple lines; the focus on this quilt is the pattern in the quilt top itself. The bold color choices, balanced with the monochromatic prints, combine to create a pop-art look.


She is featured, alongside this quilt (and these photos) in the July/August 2018 issue of Sewn Magazine. Go check it out! Erika, you rock!!

quilted by Holly King, @fatrabbitquilts // Photography Package 3 by us

This scrumptious, scrappy quilt was made with columns of chevrons, pieced with 2.5" strips. Holly then quilted it with variegated thread, walking next to the seams. She backed it with a Hungry Caterpillar themed fabric, and bound it with a solid purple. 

What makes this quilt successful

Holly used a huge variety of scraps, with lots of pattern. This could have quickly become too busy, but Holly navigated this challenge by separating the scraps into cool and warm sections. That, paired with the extremely simple and pleasing chevron design, makes this quilt an example of effective scrap-quilting.
