Boardwalk Quilt

Boardwalk Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Quilters find inspiration everywhere we look. 

We see quilts in old tile floors. We see quilts in stained glass windows. We even see quilts in patchwork fields of wheat and corn.

This week, Jenny is stitching up a new layer cake quilt inspired by childhood memories of the California Coast. 

You see, when Jenny was a little girl, her family loved to visit the beach at Santa Cruz. Even now she can picture that beautiful boardwalk stretched across the sand like long, pieced strips.

Quilting superstar Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction is here to team up with Jenny for a new tutorial, the Denim Strip Quilt! This is a great quilt for beginners because it looks so much more difficult than it is, so you can show off your skills without pulling your hair out! It doesn’t even require binding (though you could absolutely construct it like a traditional quilt with binding)!

Tube Quilting Technique!

So this is an AMAZING, fun and fast way to make a block, that has the look of a “string quilt” block or  an hourglass block.   The cool thing about this idea is that you are able to either make it very matchy-matchy or you have the freedom to make it very random and scrappy.  Their are also a lot of other ways to put it together, and you achieve a totally different look however you choose to lay it out!

All kinds of ideas are mulling around in my head of what else is possible with this technique.   Jelly Rolls make this so easy, too!  (I already have plans to piece one with honey bun strips.)  I can’t wait to show you!  I swear, once you try it you will be SO hooked.

Here is the ‘Main’ tutorial for the technique…..Oh man, you are gonna love it.
