I’ve been tackling my scraps for about 5 days (not consecutive). I am almost finished~!~ Here is a great project to make with those 2 1/2 inch squares !!! Bonnie Hunter – Quiltville – posted this link today, and suggested using your 2 1/2″ squares as leader / enders for your other projects. 2 for 1 ~!!!~
Another example of the fun to be had with scraps! 2-1/2″ squares are one of my standard scrap cuts. By regularly cutting scrap a little at a time, I always have materials ready when inspiration strikes. Of course, you can cut a lot all at once, or start with any precut 2-1/2″ strips you might have lying around. Either way, remember that all those little colored pieces add up to over 3-1/2 yards of fabric. Aren’t you thrifty?!
FILM AT FIVE
86-1/2″ x 86-1/2″
A big pile of 2-1/2″ squares! (841, to be exact). You could also use 54 2-1/2″ strips by WOF or about 1-1/2 standard jelly rolls. Use up those leftovers. This is only a LITTLE pile, about enough to make one block.
4 yards background fabric. I used white, but wouldn’t this look marvelously modern-Amish with black?!
6-8 yards backing fabric, depending on how you like…
