How to Make a Lasagna Quilt

By Allana Early
A lasagna quilt is an excellent way to use scraps of fabric.

A lasagna quilt can use up leftover fabric from your endless supply of leftover fabric. Each strip of fabric adds a new color and pattern to create an eclectic quilt resembling the delicious layered dish that is its namesake. With the design and construction process of a lasagna quilt, your finished result will be a one-of-a-kind creation for your home.

Cut each 1/3 yard fabric piece into strips ranging from 1 1/2 to 2 3/4 inches wide.

Attach the backing fabric and batting together using either adhesive spray or safety pins.

Pick any fabric strip and place it right-side-up on the batting.

Choose another strip and lay it on top of the first strip with right sides together. Align the top edges of the right sides of the strips. Sew through all layers using a 1/4-inch seam allowance.

Fold the second strip out so that the wrong side of the second strip lies on the batting. Iron the strip to remove any puckers or wrinkles.

Place the next strip on top of the second strip, again right sides together and aligning the top edges. Sew through all layers using a 1/4-inch seam. Iron the seams, making sure there are no creases.

Pick another strip, and align it along the right edge of the already existing strips. Sew through all layers using a 1/4-inch seam.

Repeat the same process until the quilt reaches your desired size.

Trim any extra fabric and bind the edges of the quilt by stitching seam binding around the raw edges.
