Ultimate Seam Guide
Size: 16" x 16" or 40" x 40"
Technique: Double strip-piecing,
precision piecing.

This miniature or wall size quilt is much easier than it looks. It starts out with 1-1/2" or 3" fabric strips and is pieced in a bargello style similar to the Sunshine & Shadow except on a smaller scale. The squares finish at 3/8" or 1" but you could easily make them other sizes by adjusting the beginning strip width. Choose 3 fabrics from light to dark, 3 accent fabrics, and a border. Batik fabrics or tightly woven fabrics that don’t have much stretch on the crosswise grain are best. Choose fabrics with only slight color variations for the quilt center. Avoid one-way prints. Accent fabrics should be in contrasting colors to make them “pop”.
