Streak of Lightning
It's a flimsy!
52.5 x 73.5
This is quilt top #6 made mostly from scraps that came to the Scrap Yard back on March 24.
This top consists of lots of 3.5 inch (finished) HSTs made with warm colored scraps.
I used the Easy Angle ruler to cut the HSTs from 4 inch width scraps. I sewed together 9 HSTs into a block of the same configuration (10.5 inch finished) and then turned alternate blocks upside down to get the streak of lightning effect.
I had to add some of my own red, yellow and orange scraps to the gifted scraps to make Streak of Lightning.
Back on March 24 I received several bags of scraps and I decided to document all the donation quilts that I am able to make from those bags of scraps in Tales from the Scrap Yard.
I sorted all of the scraps into various categories and one of the sorts was a bin of warm colors - "14 quarts of warm". (Why do they use quarts as a bin volume measure? Why not call it a 3.5 gallon bin?)
The "14 quarts of warm" consisted of several chunks. I pulled out the largest chunk - the lollipop flowers- to use in a pieced quilt back. Most of the rest of the chunks went into Streak of Lightning.
Now I am left with some strips of different lengths I sorted into little bundles by width.
I will now probably make blocks to add to WIPs. Most of those WIPs are Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects.
And also in "14 quarts of warm" there is a big bag of pieces for crumb blocks. What I consider as crumbs are small odd shaped pieces. I'll deal with all the different bags of crumbs that came to the Scrap Yard at the end of the process. I've got a lot of my own crumbs to use and I have been thinking of a few different crumb blocks to make.
I've been blogging about all that I make from the March 24 gifted scraps (aka Candra scraps) in Tales of the Scrap Yard.
