A lasagne quilt is the perfect way to use the leftover fabric from a quilter's endless supply of fabric. Each strip can bring a new colour and pattern to create an eclectic quilt that resembles the delicious layered dish that is its namesake. Following these instructions will yield a completely original quilt.

Moderately Easy

Things you need

  1. 1

    Cut each 1/3 yard of fabric into strips ranging from 1-1/2-to-2-3/4 inches wide.

  2. 2

    Attach the quilt's back and batting together using either adhesive spray or safety pins.

  3. 3

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

  4. 4

    Choose the next strip. Align the top edges of the right sides of the strip. Sew through all layers using a 1/4-inch seam.

  5. 5

    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.

  6. 6

    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.

  9. 9

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