One of my favorite quilt shops is the Missouri Star Quilt Company, http://www.missouriquiltco.com/ not only because of their famous 'Daily Deal' but also because they have many tutorials on how to use precuts. The quilt I'm featuring today from the Missouri Star Quilt Company is called, 'Summer in the Park.' You will be amazed at how easy these blocks are to make and how quickly they come together to make a pretty quilt.
When I first learned this technique I got to thinking that instead of using a square ruler to make the cuts, that it would be easier to use one of the specialty rulers that Nifty Notions or other companies offer. For this quilt, the quarter-square-triangle (QST) ruler from Nifty Notions is perfect.

Obviously using a jelly roll is the quickest way to make these blocks but you could also use fabrics from your stash and cut your own 2-1/2" strips. I think this pattern makes a great stash buster, don't you?
Until next time . . .
