I went through my scraps and got all my 2-1/2 inch squares. I even cut a few to go with it all.
Using these to lead and end my rows of my box of chocolates quilt top, then I found myself wanting to just sew a whole bunch of them. So it was fun to work on two projects at once. No deadlines, just Sewing Fun!
Then, I gathered my baggies of more smaller scraps and then went to town cutting a ton of squares so I had more of a variety in making 4 squares wide. My thought would be to do 4x4 blocks (16 patch) but then I saw a quilt that had solid fabric blocks with sashing as these smaller colorful blocks! Sew many ideas!
Two squares sewn together:
Four sewn together and pressed!
My selection of 2-1/2 inches x 2-1/2 inches
My work space (corner in our master bedroom, lol)
For now, I keep making these strips of four of similar color, and we'll see where to go from there.
Anyone else do this and have ideas?
Experience to share?
