Scrappy Strips

I’ve sewn together all the little strips that I had and trimmed my pieces to the nearest quarter inch. Here they are, widest to narrowest.

I started hunting for inspiration and found a quilt by Mary Elizabeth Kinch in her book, Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts. Based on that, I took my strips and made blocks.

My blocks are cut 9 1/2 inches, because I had a square ruler that size.

I had some leftover bits which I made into one long strip, 2 1/2 inches wide.

I’ve got an idea for that now too.

Stay tuned.

  1. Maybe that last strip could be part of an asymmetrical border–just parts of the corners???

  2. That looks amazing!
