Scrap-taming


It seems like all I've been doing lately is working with scraps. These "four-patches" helped to tame my the bag of two-inch strips. I didn't have a clue what to make with them, but I decided to combine them into larger blocks of 36 patches. I made 24 of the 36-patch blocks that will finish at 9.5 inches once they are sewn together.


When the 36 patch blocks were finished, I made 21 "churn dash" blocks, and the two will be used together in a Quilt of Valor that will hopefully be finished by next week.

  7. that is a great idea to make 4-patches with scraps. I have some left over 4-patches in my scrap bin. Now you've inspired me to pull those out and start a new box where I can keep adding 4-patches until I have enough to do something. I like this idea. Thanks!

  12. That definitely works Nancy. I just picked up 2 big tubs of fabric form a lady who is cleaning out her mom's stuff. I'm hoping my guild will be able to make charity quilts with the fabs. Lots of plaids and solids.
