Making a Tube Quilt

 

I broke out my Max and Whiskers Jelly Roll and some solid white fabric and started a “Tube Quilt”.  (Isn’t it hard to open a jelly roll??  They’re so pretty and the fabrics perfectly spaced.)

Tube Quilts are such a cool concept.  I started by sewing 2 1/2” strips into strip sets made up of three fabrics each.

Next you pair up the strip sets, right sides together and sew down BOTH sides of the strip sets.  (Making a tube).
