Use 2 1/2" strips and some simple clever Strip Piecing along with some fun easy cutting and trimming to make the octagon shape for your quilt blocks. Because it is strip pieced, this goes quicker than you may imagine. And, believe me, it is truly a no stress quilt and the centers even match every time! So grab your favorite prints in contrasting darks and medium and sprinkle in a few medium-light value prints plus you can use a soft subtle background print which really works well with strong prints. Now you have it made from Crib to King.
