I liked this pattern so much I made 4 quilts from it! Three of the quilts went to nieces and nephew. The fourth one was a Quilt of Valor. This free pattern is from The Fat Quarter Shop. They sell pre-cut fabric cut in 5" x 10" rectangles. This is basically a 10" square cut in half once. I used layer cakes for the kid's quilts. For the Quilt of Valor I cut rectangles.
This quilt is fast to cut and fast to piece. Easy too!

I was attempting to organize my large pile of scraps and one of the categories I made was width of fabric pieces. These pieces range from 3" to 17" in length. I decided to cut everything into 2-1/2" strips and start making scrap quilt from the strips.
This is Puzzle Box by Christa Watson. Christa's company is Christa Quilts. I have made several quilts using this pattern. Here is one I made for a veteran.

This pattern is from Benartex (Kanvas Studio). The quilt finishes about 60" x 75". It uses 27 pre-cut 10" squares along with some additional yardage. I made this several years ago for the shop to showcase a fabric collection from Kaffe Fassett. I didn't take a picture of that quilt.

The Corner 4-Patch block finishes at 8" and is easy and fun to make. There is a 4-patch unit in the corner. The rest of the block consists of a 4″ square and a 4″ x 8″ rectangle. Use scraps, fat quarters, yardage or a combination of all three. Use strip piecing, patchwork piecing or both to construct this unit.

This pattern is one of Moda Fabrics "Patterns To Share" as part of The Cutting Table. It is a simple, fast quilt to make and a great pattern to introduce new quilters to 2-1/2" strips. The printed pattern uses 32 strips or one Jelly Roll™ and the finished quilt is 48" x 60". The picture below uses 64 strips or about two Jelly Rolls™ and the finished quilt is 60" x 72".
