"Scrappy Sandwich" quilt that is!
It has been over five years since I made my first
|The original "Scrappy Sandwich" quilt|
and it remains one of my most 'pinned' quilts on
If you 'google' it, my quilt is the one you see!
And only yesterday it came up on my Facebook feed,
where it was shared, yet again,
|From the original quilt|
I still have a little mat I made from the cutoff
And I have a tutorial on how to make the basic block on
my Tutorials page,
which I will be updating as I make this one.
I've been cutting 3/5" wide scraps for a while now,
and started piecing yesterday.
As I strip-piece I check their length on the ruler on
the front of my sewing table.
And when they are more than the required 10.5"
I put them aside for pressing and trimming.
Sometimes the pieces are just too wide so I trim
them as I go.
I've decided I need 80 scrappy strips to make a quilt
in a similar size as last time.
I will then decide what colour the background solid
What do you think...
should I go subtle like the original sand colour,
or maybe dark like navy,
or bold like aqua?
Suggestions gratefully accepted!
