    Tube Quilt

    I have sewn 3 strips together from a jelly roll (light, medium and dark). I want to add a piece to the strip set {background fabric}
    and sew it to the strip set (right sides together) then cut at 45 degree angle. My questions is how many strips sets do I need to make for a lap quilt? I bought 3 yards for the background fabric.

    If your strips are 2 1/2 and you have 3 then the finished width would be 6 1/2 minus 1/2 for the seam allowance. Are you cutting your background fabric as a square or as a strip? What block are you making?

      60 x 60 would be a nice size lap quilt so 10 rows of 10. 3 yards equals 36 inches divided by 6.5 equals 5 strips per yard. 40 inch wide fabric for the 6.5 square equals 6. So 5 times 6 times 3 equals 90 blocks. So you would almost make the 100 blocks needed. So a 60 x 56 which would be 10 blocks by 9 blocks. Which is the exact amount you need.
