First, let me say that the 505 spray that stained my quilt came out entirely with dry cleaning, just as the manufacturer suggested.

Last weekend I taught my “Scrappy New Year” quilt at Studio Stitch in Greensboro, NC. Everybody brought stacks of scraps cut into strips of various widths.
We joined the strips into strip sets.
Then we cut the strip sets into 1-1/2 inch strips and assembled the pieced strips into blocks.
The blocks varied in size and shape, depending on the choice of the designer.
And there was at least one alternate layout for rectangular, rather than square, blocks. When the pieced strips alternated with solid strips the blocks went faster.
Eventually, everyone will have a quilt something like this:
Scrap quilt made with strips that finish 1″ wide
And as a last fun part of the weekend, I got to see a beach bag I made for our daughter several years go.
How was your week?
