Strip Tubing Baby Quilt

 Using the book Strip Tubing by Daniela Stout and Georgette Dell'Orco and Cozy Quilt Designs and the Strip Tubing ruler, we made the cutest baby quilt using the focus fabric Bubble Trubble by Studio e.   The concept is simple. For this colorful crib quilt, we sewed two coordinating 2 1/2" strips together and then sewed a 4 1/2" background strip, in this case, dots on white from the Grow With Me line by Moda, on both long ends to form a tube. Then, we placed the 5 1/2" seam line on the ruler on one of the seams of our tube and cut the triangle, flipped the ruler, placed the 5 1/2" line on the other seam which results in two mirror image triangles.  Then there are a multitude of ways to put them together.  We chose the 'Radiating Out' setting.  Becky quilted allover swirling loops and we had a quick and easy, colorful baby quilt!
