Strip piecing is a quick sewing and rotary cutting technique. Long strips of fabric are cut using a rotary cutter. They are sewn together and then cut into smaller units. These smaller units are then sewn together again to form traditional quilts.

Strip piecing is different from string piecing as it has more structure.  The strips are more uniform in size as compared to the strings’ random sizes.
