I finished this quilt last month, but I’ve been doing a lot of quilting due to quarantine, so I’m behind on showing my work. This is a scrap quilt, of course. I’ve been seeing lots of quilts with little strips inserted on Pinterest, and finally got around to developing my own.
First, I got out all my solids, including the Grunge, and cut a 12″ square from each for background. I planned to trim the blocks to 10.5″ after I finished inserting strips, since I have a 10.5″ square ruler 😀 No point making things difficult; let’s plan for easy!
Then I got out all my scraps and cut them into strips ranging from about 1″ to 2.5″ in width. I made strip sets and cut them crosswise into strips for the quilt. The inserted strips were cut in widths varying from 1″ to 2″, which of course means they finished 0.5″ to 1.5″ wide in the blocks. I made more skinny ones than wide ones.
I just slashed the blocks at random angles. I did slash and insert only one strip at a time.
After I’d inserted enough strips to suit me, I trimmed each block to 10.5″ square.
Just look at the fun flower design my quilter used!
And yes, I left 3 blocks unpieced to add interest.
