Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Out for a Stroll!!

I think I have spent more time walking in the last week, than I did the entire month before.  I am so grateful that it is a little warmers so I can get out of the house and find comfort and peace in being outdoors ;)   Even if it is just walking around the neighborhood and waving at friends from a distance.     And so for today's Thursday , I thought it would be perfect to go back 6 years to the Out for a Stroll  quilt!!!  

Out for a Stroll is a great way to learn to piece quilts on point.  There are two basic blocks in this quilt and then some are just cut in half to make the setting triangles.   So you can learn to piece on point without all of the hassle of sashing.  So great!!!    It finishes at 70" x 88" so it makes a great size for snuggling up in or for a twin size bed!!!    

I used Yardage to make my Out for a Stroll quilt, which you can do as well.   But it is also an amazing scrap buster!!!  Especially if you want to use up a bunch of low volume scraps :)   And you don't have to do black and white, just pick two favorite colors and then add one additional color for pop!!!   

Out for a Stroll is a wonderfully fun geometric designs that looks so much harder to make than it actually is.   You really can put this together in no time.  And it makes a great teen gift because of its more modern feel.  This quilt was actually gifted to my niece for her High School Graduation.   It is fun to think that she is now married, finished college, and starting a career as an amazing graphic designer!!!  

And that is my Out for a Stroll Quilt!!!     I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday as much as I have!!!    And maybe you can make Out for a Stroll for someone special to you!!!      To make your own Out for a Stroll quilt  just click on any of the project name links for the free step by step tutorial.    And when you are done,  I would love to see your Quilts!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  :)   I can't wait to see your Out for a Stroll!!!
