There's something just so wonderful about scrappy quilts. I love the process of digging through my scraps to find just the right fabrics to pair together. We all have those prints that are our favorites and I'm no exception. Seems those favorite fabrics make it into every scrap quilt I make! Do you find you do that, too? That's our love, if not obsession, with fabric, and why we never have too much of it!
Presently, along with working on my super secret scrappy project early every morning, I'm also cutting and sometimes piecing the parts of five other scrap quilts at the same time. Because scrappy is so labor intensive, I am making the most of the opportunity when I choose, starch and cut each piece. Why dig through your scraps and stash again and again? So, with that in mind, I have a little list of what to cut for each quilt. I must be organized and make the best use of my precious sewing time. More on this subject when the super scrappy secret project is revealed later this year.
The Nine Patch blocks in the quilt above finish to 1.5 inches. My next teeny, tiny quilt will be a simple Four Patch, with blocks finishing to 1 inch!!
That has me wondering....what is the smallest Four Patch block you are willing to make?
Notice I didn't say "comfortable" making....I know bigger is more comfy. So, I want to know if you set out to make a little scrappy Four Patch quilt, what is the smallest size finished Four Patch you will make?
I have a poll on the side bar of my blog where you can cast your vote....and please do! It will be fun to see the stats. Click here to see the poll.
And....if you leave me a comment about the smallest size and/or how many scrappy quilts you might work on simultaneously, I will choose a few people to receive my newest.....
