One way to use up ‘left-over’ fabric.
A while back an inspiration for tackling the pile of fabric scraps came from “Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles’ by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolfe.
Decisions, decisions – made easy. From then on it’s cutting ALL ‘left-overs’ into 4.5″ x 2.5″ pieces no matter what! Time is too short to cut up bits in lots of different sizes for different projects – after all, the originals have already been used in a quilt.
There are lots of ways to sew the units together, especially if Bonnie Hunter’s technique is used – sew a patch as you sew-off from a previous one. A fun way to make scrap quilts. So ‘Sweet Things’ is one of them.
These four blocks are each made up of 6 units (3 patches in a unit) and have been extended with the plain strip to make it large enough for a baby-sized charity quilt. Now at 24″ x 28″, it meets the requirements for a ‘hospital give-away’ via my guild.
Quilting is with Westalee’s‘Simple Circles’ 1″ circle and Hobby Quilt’s ‘Wave & Scallop’. Makes for a lovely design.
And there’s more … UFO #3 for 2019 is finished!
