Bright scrap string quilt

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Other What are you most proud of? I love the bright colors of so many of my scraps. It's not only bright, it's a memory quilt. Many of the quilts I've made are suggested by photos I've seen. I rarely work from a pattern. What advice would you give someone starting this project? My summer quilt buddy and I each made 30 blocks and swapped 15. It doubled the variety of prints and reduced some of our scraps. It was so much fun working together. This was our 5th quilt project. Find yourself a buddy and create your own fun.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric scraps leftover from tons of projects.

Sew 12 strips ( 1.5x12.5) to make each block. Finished blocks are joined together with 2.5 inch strips of sashing using a 2.5square for the posts. Email me
