    Mixtape quilt - Picture added

    How do you make a mixtape quilt? Specifically, the blocks?

        Do you mean a string block?

              I think that the girls at the store will have to look into this. The pattern is only available for purchase through Elizabeth at Oh, Frasson!. I'm sure that due to copyright the shop can't do a tutorial on this....but I'll let them check in and give the final word....

                It's very pretty! I can't tell at this point even what the theory is behind making it either! Maybe we can buy the pattern (it's $10 and is emailed) and then make them as a group. You can make them in small (wall hanging) to large (queen bed)sizes. It could be lots of fun!
                I love the names of her patterns too! Did you see them?
                Favorite songs for the small size, then a little larger is the party mix, and the largest is the greatest hits size! Love it! :P

                    It rather appears to be using Jellyrolls, sewn into strips of three and then cut into squares .. and the parts either sewn together just by turning them, perhaps one is done with a narrow sashing.. the pictures were not really easy to check out, but if you like jelly rolls I have a feeling this might be one you'd like. Just how it looks to me
                    If you can't see it riding by on a fast horse - it ain't there.

                      I agree something similar could be done with jelly rolls but I don't think that's how the pattern is made if you look closely there are several different strip sizes and size groupings going on. Not all of it would account for cutting the strips apart for the blocks either. But I've been thinking about it and I think you could probably get a similar effect using a jelly roll and honey bun together. It'd end up more scrappy then the ones shown but I think it'd still be pretty cool!

                        I thought that it looked like it could be made from strips of your favorite coordinating fabrics. Jelly rolls would work. The whole idea behind a mixed tape was that you pulled your favorite songs from a bunch of different albums to make one tape that fit your mood. (Thanks to the iPod no more hours in front of the stereo!) The quilt looked like it was made using fabrics that were all in the same color family, but possibly from different makers or lines. I was eyeing a bunch of my Halloween leftovers, and thinking that I don't really have enough to make a whole quilt, but this would be a great way to piece together the back, make a cute throw for the sofa, or a table runner to showcase my favorite little pieces and get them out of my stash!
