Two posts in one day for two days in a row? I guess I am wordy this week! Anyway, today is the day for She Can Quilt’s Scraptastic Tuesday link up. And I have been working a bit with scraps lately. I recently spent some time cutting up a bunch of scraps into these 2 inch by 3 1/2 inch rectangles. I saw this quilt at Klein Meisje’s blog and have had it pinned for ages on Pinterest. While sorting scraps, I decided it was time to start cutting for it. Eventually, it will be laid out like this.
She cut her rectangles only 1 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches! Yikes! I loved her blue background and want to use a solid for my alternate pieces as well. I need to find something for that yet. This would be a perfect leader/ender project. And I need one, so I want to figure out the background so I can start soon. I liked this idea so much, that I also cut the same size pieces from Civil War repro scraps.
I’d like to alternate these with shirting scraps. I need to cut lots of those. In fact, this little container has about 650 pieces and I need about three times that many to make a bed quilt.
BTW, I used this die to cut my rectangles.
Hold the presses! I just found several yards of this blue in my stash!
