Thanks to the commissioned t-shirt quilt I've got lots of 2.5 inch strip sets left over from the binding and sashing in the quilt (pieces and full width-of-fabricsets). And I've a hard time tossing out stuff that is usable....might be why I have so many scraps...lol. the strips sets, when sub-cut and resewn make 2.5 inch four-patches.
At any rate, I started thinking about what I could do with all the 4-patches that I could make from the leftover pieces. At the same time I'm still trying to use up some of the abundance of scraps that I have and currently have two bags on the kitchen counter where my cutting mat is- blacks and assorted solids.
So this morning I quickly made a few 4 patches and then bordered them with some of the brighter solids in the scrap bag. Trimmed the resulting blocks to 5.5 inches and laid them out with some of the larger black pieces to see how they looked. First layout is below.
Another possible layout is below. Haven't decided which one I want to make.....or how many blocks I want to piece. I know I could make more 4-patches than I have brighter/lighter scraps so I may end up cutting strips from some of my remnants to finish this quilt when I finally decide on a layout.
Which layout do you like?
1. Living in town with only a mile to drive to work when storms like the one today are in the area.
2. Good health insurance as more treatments and tests pile up.
