    JRR 1 or2 Using FQ's?

    I am sure someone mentioned that she used fat quarters to create strips for her JRR quilt. Would that work visually? It seems that you would have to cut at least 82 strips, to get the right size.... I'd love to see a picture of one done this way....

    Thanks.

    I think it would be cool looking. I never wanted to make one, but I'd like to see it in shorter strips too.

      Here's mine. I used colors from some pillows in my daughter's living room to set the pallet. I'm going to remove the last six rows on the right. That will eliminate the big gold blob and will make it a more manageable size. Honestly, I have no idea how many FQs I used. I just kept cutting the until the pile felt right and looked like I wanted it to. I would throw each strip into the pile one by one and then mixed them up periodically to "test" how they would work together. It was kind of fun to do. I cut the strips into random sizes now and then to mix it up a little more.

            Jean just posted a thread of her JJR quilts and I think she mentions the number of strips needed.

                That's very nice. I think I like the shorter strips much better. Thanks for sharing.

                  I mentioned using pieced strips for my binding. I cut the strips from FQs for my String Baby Quilt.2013 pics - Baby Quilt 11-13 185.jpg I also pieced FQ strips of all the same fabric for a baby quilt binding. I had no yardage, so used the FQs. I don't think I'd want to do all that piecing for a large quilt, but it works fine for smaller quilts. JCY
