You know I love working with scraps and when we got ready to head to the cottage, for the season, and I didn’t have a project to work on, I grabbed my Kona cotton scrap basket and headed out the door. Usually when I make a scrap quilt I just cut and sew random pieces, and sizes, and when I get down to squaring and finishing, I add pieces, as needed, to make it all go together.
After 37 years of quilting, I decided to try a new method.
I went with numbers that would easily make a 12″ block. Pieces were cut to a finished size of 2″, 3″ and 4″. I added strips finishing at 1″. With all the common sizes, I can pretty much make any layout work. Crazy how much easier this is going to be to put together!
And don’t look for this to be done anytime soon. This is for rainy days with nothing else going on. We’ve been here a month and yesterday we saw our first rain. It even went as far as a lightening show out over the lake. Though we do need rain, this crazy beautiful weather can continue, quilting will still be here when the snow flies!
