Digital Zip Strip Quilt Pattern | Fun & Done Quilting | 110

Zip Strip is an updated version of a Rail Fence block. It gives this quilt a more contemporary look. Satisfy your need for speed with this fun and easy quilt-as-you-need technique. If you are new to the Fun & Done Quilting technique this is a great pattern to start with. Pick fabrics that are Fun, then get it Done!

While it looks like this quilt can be made using 2-1/2 inch strips, you could but there would be a great deal of waist, so it is not advised.

While it is not required, I always suggest purchasing Batting Buddy 2-Piece Template Set. It can be found under Templates. The Batting Buddy 2-Piece Template Set makes cutting and assembly so much easier and with great results. The frame portion is used to cut the backing fabric. The inner square portion is used to cut out the batting. Use the frame again to perfectly center the batting in the middle of the backing. I use a walking foot with a 1/4" foot for block construction. Use the stitch-in-the-ditch foot for sewing blocks together and for sewing down the sashing. A zipper foot works okay.

This pattern is designed to be printed on 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper. If your standard paper size is different, when printing your pattern be sure to print the template pages actual size, not fit to page.To make the assembly of the blocks as easily as possible, also purchase a Batting Buddy.
