New Project – Still growing!

Posted on December 11, 2020 by Beth Markel

In October I began a new project, really with a goal to use up existing strips, stripes, leftovers, bits and bobs. My original goal was to use 3 containers of scraps. So far, it’s put a dent in two of my storage containers, but as the project grows, I’m liking it more and more, so opening even more storage containers to raid. This has been an awesome project to be focused on while still in Michigan’s Covid lock-down.

Blocks of 2, then 4, then 6… make a strip. Each block of 3 fabrics is 3/4″ finished. Then 6 strips are sewn together to make a larger “block” and so on. Four of the 6″ blocks sewn in a square is what I’ll use for the final layout.

This is 36 of the 6″ blocks

So off you go! Be creative and be kind ~
