Hello Betty

by Julie Hirt

This is my current work in progress – I had to take a break from the quilt I started.  It’s a bit tedious and making me crazy.    This fabric is Hello Betty by Chloe’s Closet for Moda, it has a retro 50’s vibe and I love it.   There are forty-four 1.5″ strips. I’ve hung onto it for a while – honey bun patterns aren’t as common as jelly rolls, charms, etc.

I decided just to sew them all together. I realized the size was perfect for a baby quilt,  I love the stripey one inch look but I want this fabric for myself!     So I’m going to make a table runner and place mats. There may even be enough leftover to make another scrappy dish towel.

After you sew all the stripes together it’s a little larger than a yard of fabric – since I took out the 6 solids I ended up with 38″ x 42″ piece of fabric.
