As promised I have started a new and simple
I started cutting out 2.5" squares from my scraps
about eighteen months ago...
So I decided it was time to dive in and go for it....
making 16-patch blocks....
I need 50 of these for the plan I have...
an idea I saw on Pinterest...
And here it is waiting to be pieced together!
I hope to get it together this week sometime.....
(edited: a full tutorial can be found here )
Oh, such happy scraps!
Looks lovely...... Recognise some of those fabrics......
Ooh! I love it!
Looks fabulous!! All that seam pressing though ....
A wonderful scrappy project! What a good idea to collect the little squares for a few months!
I love this quilt, I think it's going to be a hit like Tartan Plaid. I'm going to spend some time reading your fabrics.
I have been cutting similar squares for a while too. Love your layout!
This is going to be wonderful.
Lovely scrappy and such fun to see all those different fabrics, some familiar and some new to me!
I love the idea of cutting the squares over a long period of time. It gets overwhelming to think about otherwise!
I love all that inspiration ... and I do have a tin of that sized squares. In fact, I see some very familiar fabrics among those blocks.
Love it, so pretty!
Amazing! Did you piece it randomly or did you have a plan putting the 16 pieces together? What size does 50 blocks make? I don't have much of 2.5" collection but will be making a conscious effort to do so from now on so I can make one of these also. Love it!
Making 16-patch blocks has been on my bucket list for a long time. I love your layout and I may copy it if you don't mind!
Such a fun way to use up scraps. I love a scrappy quilt and cannot wait to see how yours turns out.
Sometimes the simplest patchwork is the best! I think this would also be a great idea for using up those mini packs of fabric that I always seem to acquire. Very fun!
Wow, that is a great setting! You have been busy.
That does look good!! So simple yet extremely effective. Love the way the blocks are offset. Wonderful way to use up scraps!! Hope you get time this week to work on it.
Wow, that's gorgeous! I'm collecting my scraps and never know what to do with them... This might be a perfect project :-)
OMGosh this turned out so pretty and colorful! I love it!
This is a really neat design, Susan! I think you picked a good one. Isn't it fun to see all the ways that 2-1/2" squares can be put together? The possibilities are endless!
I really like this setting!
what size is your connecting rectangle
I have edited this page to link to the complete tutorial and cutting instructions
I cannot find the link to your complete tutorial. Love your idea!
I can’t either.
That looks awesome! I started doing one myself and call it my covid quilt since all the fabric was scraps from all the masks
Beautiful, how did you press? All one direction each square so as to nest? Gonna make one too, I have a lot of scraps waiting for something lol!
I just started cutting 2” squares and wondered what I would make, now I know. Thanks for sharing!
