This is my favorite quick donation quilt. Just a yard of a novelty print and two coordinating fabrics from stash and it always looks so cute!

Dawn made several and I thought I’d share a couple here including a variation where she created a larger center section. You can click on either photo to see a larger view.

    Thank you for such a quick yet pretty quilt pattern. I make a lot of children and baby quilts for charity and this works great. Most of the fabric I use is donated and this lends itself to that. Can use several focus fabrics as long as they fit a theme.

  6. Thanks, Mary!
    I’ve enjoyed making several strip quilts for donations (42 x 64). I sew 17 strips using four 8″ focus strips: sports themes, ocean & lighthouse, safari. Since I do not quilt, I simply use the cotton strip pattern for the front, and then a fleece back (blues & greens). I sew the front to the back using the “stitch in the ditch” on the strips. Thanks!

  7. Love the ease and attractive of design. Appreciate your sharing.

  8. Great quilt and easy. Glad you shared. Have wanted something attractive when finished yet easy with lots of free motion quilting room. Thanks. Will make many for grands and greats and charity.

    Thanks for the Strippie pattern. We’re using it to make a queen-sized quilt for a grandson. The quilt looks quite “mod” and should be a neat surprise when he arrives home in Feb. We also use it to make charity quilts for hospitals.

    I found your “strippie” pattern and made up kits for our guild to use as comfort quilts for various charities in our area and had a wonderful response to how easy they were to make up and finish…they were a BIG hit. I even used the idea to make a bedspread size one for my grandson’s bed in Avengers material….Thanks

    Mary, A friend asked me to make memory lap quilts using her moms formal dresses. Most appear to be polyester, chiffon, satin etc. These are decades old. Have any suggestions on using the dress fabric? I am at a loss on quilt patterns using these type of fabrics. Help!

    I own a small quilt shop in Shiner, TX. We have been looking for ideas for a beginner quilt class for adults. This is perfect!!!! They can learn several things and have a finished quilt in only a few classes. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!

    I used the same pattern and made 3 quilts for my nieces step-children. 2 boys and 1 girl. The girl’s had flowers and the boys had sports balls and then used colors from the main fabric for the other strips. I used the flip and sew method. Less quilting that way. Very interesting. Quick and easy.

  16. Just found this pattern from the 9 super cool quilty things on the internet at Stitch This. I love the simplicity of this quilt. I love how it playfully shows off a fun fabric. I will remember this. Hope to make one soon. I’m working up tons of charity quilts lately.

  17. Something sew simple that’s sew cute! I just love this quilt layout. The cows and the sheep, never in a million years would I buy that fabric. But when it’s put together like this, it makes the perfect medium. Now I’ll be going to the fabric store specifically looking for fabrics like that. Can’t wait to find some landscape fabrics.

    I, too, want to thank you for sharing this strippie quilt pattern. It is really great for making up something quickly but makes a nice gift or charity quilt. And they are great for practicing free motion machine quilting..thanks again.

    My heart felt thank you for this pattern. I have been searching for an easy donation quilt pattern. One that was easy and I would proud to give any child.

    Mary, thank you for sharing your love of quilting. Our charity quilt group “Quilts for Kids Round Rock” has made at least 100 quilts from this pattern. We also have made many variations including substituting a variety of 6 1/2″ squares sewn together for the focus row or substituting a different fabric for each focus row, Alternating colors on the smaller strips and so forth. Since we work with donated fabric, we have to get creative! It is a wonderful, very fast and easy to quilt pattern and we enjoy working with it. Thanks again, Marie Schlameus Chapter Coordinator Quilts For Kids Round Rock Texas. TexasQFK@aol.com

  23. I make a lot of charity quilts, I also love scrappy quilts. I could see this in 5 different 6.5″ WOF, with the tone on tone and accent to tie them all together too. This pattern’s a keeper I think.

  24. Connie on said:

    What a great idea. I’m still a novice quilter and I love finding quilts within my skill level that look so rich. Thank you for sharing.

  25. I will try this, I am new and this looks like fun. Will make great Baby Quilts.

    Hi Mary,
    I am just finishing up my third strippie. I love this quilt! The first one was a twin for my disabled vet uncle made out of Marine fabric. The next two were baby quilts.Can’t wait to try one of your other quilts.
    Thank you.
