Those darn scraps


I have to do something with all my scraps.  They are breeding like bunnies.  I saw a picture of a quilt on Pinterest and I used it as inspiration for these blocks.  Supersized at 18" square, these are put together with string scraps of different widths.  Going just from a picture, I did not have an idea how big to make the blocks but big seemed to be the answer!  I am using a controlled scrappy colour palette and I will sash the blocks in grey.  I am aiming to make this a big block big quilt because I want to use a lot of fabric!

  1. Great idea! I plan to make a picnic quilt with some scraps that I'm no longer crazy about. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

  2. A picnic quilt sounds like a great idea too. Bigger is better! Enjoy scrap busting Cathy. I'm trying to do that as well. Started a quilt for one of my grand girls : )

  4. Great idea and grey will be the perfect sashing. I need to do this, will probably go for 15" blocks since that is the largest ruler I have.

  5. These are great! Are the widths consistent along the length of each strip? I.e. If it's 2", it's 2" the whole length, and not a scrap that narrows? (String)
