You know how sometimes your just get a "bee in your bonnet" and sew. . . . and sew . . . until you're done with a project? That's what I have been doing on this "Scrap Tease" quilt,
I just want to sew and use things up.
The stack of strips at the front of the photo above were a bit of frustration. I cut them out 6 3/8" instead of 6 5/8" so I had to recut about 50 pieces.
I completed the sewing on these 54 blocks this morning. I still need to cut and sew the corner pieces for the blocks to make them square.
This is the 3rd time I have made this pattern. I like it because it uses up lots of 1 1/2" strips and it sews up quickly. And it turns out cute every time. The original quilt has sashing but I like it better with just blocks side by side.
The pattern is by Bettie Hammock and there is a digital download here
My original goal was to use up all the Pam Kitty Morning scraps which I did. I used up a lot more than that but my large scrap box looks just as full as before. Isn't that always the case?
