How ingenious of me :) 

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!

Quilt math @ SewfrenchAnd 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!
