Quilt As You Go (QAYG) Strip Quilt FREE Tutorial

Make a strip quilt and quilt it as you go (QAYG) so by the time the quilt top is done, the back and quilting are done too, and you are ready for binding!

The finished quilts are approximately 45’’ x 50’’. It would be easy to make this quilt pattern longer by using more strips in the center. You could also make it bigger overall by adding more borders around the edges.

You will need:

  • 24 strips of fabric for the front of the quilt (center) – 2 1/2’’ x 42’’
  • 24 strips of fabric for the back of the quilt (center) – 2 1/2’’ x 42’’
  • 5 strips of fabric for the front of the quilt (border) – 2 1/2’’ x 42’’
  • 5 strips of fabric for the back of the quilt (border) – 2 1/2’’ x 42’’
  • 5 strips of fabric for the quilt binding – 2 1/2’’ x 42’’

You'll also need:

  • 1 pkg of 2 1/4’’ wide pre-cut batting on a roll (you will have some leftover) OR
  • about 1 1/2 yards of 60’’ wide batting (you will also have some leftover, but buying 1 1/2 yards means that you can cut strips that are 42-45’’, instead of only 36’’ or 60’’ wide strips) OR
  • Trim a lot of batting scraps into 2 1/2’’ wide strips (we all have leftover batting strips!)
