Explore this wonderful new pattern series by Kaye England -Signature Scraps. It takes advantage of that ever increasing stash of fabric you all have (and you know who you are!)
This quilt is very easy to cut, all 1½" strips will get you busy in a flash. This is where I recommend trading with friends, or you can use fat quarters or even fat eighths. The more the variety, the nicer the quilt. Keep a stack of light/mediums and a stack of medium/darks (perhaps two baskets) then begin your assembly. The dark that creates the "X" in the pattern, would be stronger if you keep the same fabric in this position.
