Last week I decided I needed to start something new to keep my overflowing scrap box in order and there would no better way to do it than to start another crazy scrappy quilt.
The best thing about this quilt is it uses up all types of scrap shapes from squares to strips to triangles. No scrap is too scrappy for this quilt!
This time I'm hoping to make a much larger version with at least 20 - 30 blocks (that's how bad the scrap sitch is).
What I want to know is, do you want to join me????????
Below is the tute for making the basic block, along with a button if you care to wear it on your blog. As an added incentive for you to get scrapping with me, I'll be holding a yummy-super-scraptastic giveaway!!!!!!!!! in a few weeks time open to all who are participating.
Crazy Scrappy block tute
For my quilt, I'll be making 11" blocks with each block using shades of one colour only, so if you want to do the same first sort your scraps according to colour.
We will be working around the block clockwise, so trim the excess from the next edge along in that direction, in the above case this is the bottom edge.
I promise these are very addictive!
So the question is,
care to join me????
