Simple Switchbacks

Simple strips and angled background shapes give this quilt its impact! Straight line sewing, no insets.

Create this contemporary quilt using simple strip piecing and clever cutting methods that allow you to always simply sew straight lines in the quilt!

This is a great quilt for using up your scraps for the small, pieced strips. Then show off your favorite batik or other cotton quilt fabric in the background sections.

Background sections are cut at angles (instructions included). Then each section of strips and background sections are joined in a specified order so that you are always sewing simple straight lines.

Finished quilt size: 66” x 84”
