6 inch Strip Quilt

This lap quilt is made by piecing smaller pieces into 6 inch wide sections which are then made into a longer strip. After deciding the size I desired, I added 3 inch accent strips of the same fabric to make the project more cohesive. This is a fun way to use left over pieces from other projects to make something "new". I've used this simple technique to make tiny "quilts" for the Preemie babies in the Neonatal unit, a wall hanging for family and a baby quilt.
