Block quick piecing scraps around a square.
Sew.... I am, of course, still sewing baby related things..... but inbetween -inspired by the store customer quilters, I am doing block based scrap quilting..... Quick easy and basically unplanned or any particular size pieced together...
So, this can be done with an 8 x 8 - 10 x 10 or a
12 x 12 block base... and you can piece it with the block squared straight or on the diagonal...
Your center piece of the block can be whatever size you want and build from there... so here are the first two blocks with the idea that they are the beginning of two different scrap quilts based on the same idea.
I used 10 x 10 base blocks. The fabrics are from the boxes of scraps from face masks.
I decided the center blocks should be a person place or thing centered and then the other pieces are just random strips.
4. Lay your strips on the square and use quarter inch seams... have your iron handy.. and press as you go... You can see here I have them on a wool pressing pad... and the iron next to it so I can just sew on, press and go to the next pieces..
When the pieces you iron flat start hanging over your base block-trim and you will end up with a finished block the size of your base block-whatever size you chose.
Sew.... Those are my mask scraps.... how about you?.... but they don't have to be scraps... you can make yours what ever you like... come to
