This started as a “leaders and enders” project to intersperse a little play time with other projects. I cut some scraps into strips, joined the strips lengthwise, and cut across the strip sets to make multi-fabric strips.
The blocks finish 12″ square because I had a square ruler 12.5″ x 12.5″ at hand to trim them as I made them. They are set on point because “why not?” The biggest challenge was making the setting triangles–of course it would be waaay too easy if one could just cut a regular block in half, but it doesn’t work that way!
If you want to know how to figure setting triangles, All People Quilt has an excellent chart that makes it easy. After starting with the chart, I recommend rounding up to the nearest inch (or centimeter). The resulting triangle will fit into its space just fine but will stick out from the outer edge of the quilt. Once the quilt is all sewn together you can just cut off the extra as you square up the top.

One thing I enjoy about scrap quilts is seeing lots of little bits from previous projects. Some of those scraps are older than the age I feel 😀
