It is a mouthful of a title but since the stripe is the star of the show and it is a simple pattern design to stitch, the new word Stripeplicity seems just right. My friend Kay came up with this new word and we like it!
The 7 ½”finished block goes together quickly with a strip set and a stripe segment. Perfect fun and fast for a baby quilt or small lap quilt.
The pattern includes the cutting instructions and fabric requirements for both directions of stripes, horizontal (stripe is parallel to the selvedge) or vertical (stripe is selvedge to selvedge). The optional accent squares give the eye a resting spot when the stripe might take over. Also included in the pattern are fabric tips for different styles of stripes.
The projects are 12 blocks, 28 ½" x 36", 20 blocks 36"x43 ½" and 24 blocks 36"x 51". Stripes are available in so many looks and styles; have fun searching for your perfect stripe look.
The inner border of the 12 block cover quilt is courtesy of Windham Fabrics: Art History 101 by Marcia Derse. We used many fabrics from the Kaffe Fassett Collective for Free Spirit Fabrics in the cover quits; they always have great stripes.
