All of the blocks I made this week are made from 4.5 inch scraps. I had a pile of fabrics that were probably less than a fat quarter or fat eighth and cut them into 4.5 inch strips, 2.5 inch strips and 1.5 inch strips since those are the size of scraps I most often use.
Here are my four Dresdens. Every month my goal is to make four of them appliqued to a gray background. I will make one in all the color of the month, one in month's color plus complement, one in month's color and black/white and one in month's color plus white/black. In addition I am using polka dot centers surrounded by gray rick rack.
I keep forgetting to take photos of the process and some tips on how I make Dresdens...maybe next month.
Lest you be squeamish that I include spiders in my quilts...look up the symbolism of spiders in quilts and you will see that they are a symbol of good luck.
2 - 12 inch Broken Wheel Blocks.
Two sixteen inch Chevron blocks. I'll probably use these at the end of the year in donation quilts.
Two 12 inch HST blocks. I'll probably also use these at the end of the year in donation quilts.
Use them up and show us what you've accomplished each ScrapHappy Saturday (an RSC linky party).
