If you’ve followed this blog very long you know when a scrap bin gets full I design a quilt around that bin. Well, I could barely put the lid on the gray, beige, and black bins. So I cut a bunch of those scraps into strips and made this quilt. I had intended to have the strips placed in the same place in each block. But I didn’t quite make it. I didn’t want to have to rip things out so I made it a design element. Giving it a wonky modern look.
While sorting through scraps I found a bunch of 3″ half square triangles, four patches and plain squares. I’m not sure what they were intended to become. I decided to add sashing between them to make larger blocks then add plain white squares as an alternate block. Finally I set everything on point. I have enough of the 3″ squares to make another quilt. I’ll be switching the black and white fabrics for a sister quilt.
Instructions for this quilt are coming out in my newsletter. Sign up so you don’t miss out!
