Today I'm working on the green section and decided to pull out some techniques from bargello or trip-around-the-world tubular piecing to create scrappy strips of multiple fabrics:
So the first step to making this is to select your green fabrics and cut three strips all 1.5 inches wide. Seam all the strips together lengthwise, then fold the bottom strip up to the top and seam the last long edge so you form a tube.
After forming the tube, you can then cut 1.5" strips, opening the rings at different places to form random strips of many different fabric arrangements.
Reading this, I know it might sound complicated, but it's really very simple! Let's watch the video so you can see how it works!
When it comes to the actual foundation piecing, you're really just applying strips in a row much like we did for the red hair section. The only difference is now you're starting with pieced strips rather than just plain fabric.
If you like this style of piecing, you should really check out bargello style quilts. I made one wall hanging early in my quilting adventures and found it lots of fun, kind of like putting together an intricate puzzle!
Let's go quilt,
