I’ve been accumulating a few scraps of late, with all this crafting so decided to sit down and do what a lot of ladies do : make a few scrappy blocks. I have no idea what they are going to become part of, so don’t even ask. The vague plan is to try and make 6 inch blocks and 12 inch blocks from time to time – which should come in useful at some point.
I was feeling very “square” . . . so made two 6” blocks. Squares a little wonky (not my best piecing)
Fabrics used are from the Time 4 Teal blocks and cushion covers I made. So a chess board effect with 1” squares and a central square of 2”. I think they’re really cute & dinky. I’m definitely going to make some more!
I then delved into my “samples” box. These are not strictly scraps, but are only scrappy sizes. Whenever I order fabric from Pelenna Patchworks, I always make sure to ask for a few samples of fabrics that are usually pieces 2.5” x just over 5”. It always helps to see fabric for real before deciding what to order for a bigger sewing project. But then, it always seems a shame just to leave the samples hidden in a box. So . . . I added some plain white and made up two 12” blocks.
They look the same size as the two above, but being 12”, smaller squares are 2” each this time ^^ For the first one, I jumbled prints around for a totally scrappy effect. For the second one I went for something more organised. I think I prefer things organised lol.
