    Pick any strip, and place it right-side up on top of the batting.

    Place the next strip on top of the first strip, again aligning the top edges. Sew through all layers using a 1/4-inch seam. Iron the seams, making sure there are no creases.

    Pick another strip, and align it along the right edge of the already existing strips. Sew through all layers using a 1/4-inch seam.

  7. 7

    Add another strip to the already sewn strips, again aligning the right edges. Sew with a 1/4-inch seam. Iron the new seams.

  8. 8

    Repeat steps until the quilt has reached its desired length.

    Trim any extra fabric, then bind the edges of the quilt.
