Strudel Quilt - Digital Pattern
I love scrappy quilts. And I REALLY love using leftover pieces from previous projects to create new ones. It’s sort of like the sourdough bread principle! Such was the case in this Strudel quilt. The center goodies (apple strudel is my personal favorite) came from leftover triple rail units that I cut into 2 ½” three piece rectangles as my starting point. From there I ‘wrapped’ them in white and then coordinating colors from my Kaffe Fassett stash much like you would wrap your apples in pastry. These blocks were the result. I decided that they needed to be offset to create more interest. So I added one final piece of white on the bottom of each block and played with the layout until I was happy.
Don’t worry if you don’t have your own “starter” sets for the center. Cut your scraps into 2 ½” squares and you’ll be ready to go.
I hope you will enjoy making your own calorie free Strudel quilt!
