You may remember at my last Quilty Hug Sew In we finished quilt a few tops. That means I had several project boxes to fill. So I spent a day with my Accuquilt Go Cutter and my scrap bins. My first stack of scraps were the ones I showed in my YouTube video on how to pick fabrics for your next scrap quilt. I used my 2 1/2″ strip die and cut all that pretty red and yellow fabric into strips. Next I sub cut the strips into the pieces that would be needed to make this simple plus block
For the next project box I found a bunch of green Christmas squares already cut. So I pulled some red and black kona bought at the Fat Quarter Shop. Ran it through the Go Cutter with the 1 1/2″ strip cutter. The red I sub cut into strips to fit the squares. The black I turned the other way and made me a bunch of 1 1/2″ corner posts.
My final bunch of scraps reminded me of the gunne sax dresses by Jessica Mcclintock my sisters and I used to wear in the 80’s. What a great decade! Loved the music! Still do! I cut these scraps with my 3 1/2″ square die from my 12″ cube set. I’m thinking we’ll sew them into 9 patches with a dark red in the center of each. Then cut them and make a disappearing nine patch. Should make a pretty Quilty Hug.
Now my boxes are full and I’m ready for the next sew in. Can’t believe it only took me one day. Thank you Accuquilt!
