The other day I mentioned I was going to piece a couple more Quick Strippies so I could use them for practice when the new longarm gets here and I pulled a couple “kits”. While I have a bin that I toss my novelty prints in, every now and then I go ahead and pull the coordinating fabrics from stash and put them all together so I can grab one and go. I decided I’d make these two.

I started with the animal print – it’s not directional but with such a large motif I wanted to decide ahead of time which way was up so I lined it all up on my design wall after I got the smaller strips sewn together.

And just like that, the top is done!

Instructions for the Quick Strippie can be found on my MaryQuilts.com website at this link.

I also got the last Maine Happy Block top loaded on the longarm. If I feel energetic enough tonight I’ll get that started, if not I’ll work on it tomorrow.

  1. More adorable novelty prints. I’ve made several of these and really appreciate your instructions. So simple and showcases the fun prints so well. I may need to see what I might have hiding in the stash to make another.

  2. Cute, cute, cute and so simple! This is a good pattern for a quick baby quilt too. Can’t wait to see your bowtie quilt all quilted. It’s also a very cute quilt.

  3. Those both are so, so cute! Seeing how precious these simple little “quickie” quilts turn out has really inspired me! I have a couple of novelty prints in mind to give’em a try (in fact, I’m going to move them WAY up the “to-do” list after seeing these!!). Thank you so much for sharing both the pictures/inspiration & the pattern!

  4. Quick Stripes are a favorite “GO TO” for me, and the perfect pattern to get me back into my quilting groove when I have taken a break. Like you, I have just started keeping three coordinating fabrics together. So much easier. Thanks for all the great posts, tips and quilting.

  5. Love them both. I made a quick strippy with the whales and a solid navy thin stripe and aqua wavy print. That was for the Houston flooding and I had had the fabrics in my stash long enough for them to be a first choice so you are holding the fabrics awhile.
