I have been finishing up my Modify Tradition Quilt Blocks . I reached the point where I only had
small scraps left.
I needed 1 last block. So here is what I came up with.
It turned out to be a great way to use up the tiny scraps.
You can use 3"x3" sqaures or a triangle template that is half of the square.
If you want to try it.....
You will need to cut 3.5 3"x3" squares or 7 triangles ,of 7 different fabrics for 12 1/2 " block
8 fabrics will give you a 14" block
Once you have all your little triangles cut ,Lay them out in rows
You will need to cut 1 of the triangles in half of each color to even up the rows.
Like in the photo.
After you have them all laid out. Sew two colors together to make a strip.
I used a scant seam. And a NEW needle to keep the small piece sewing clean.
After each seam is sewn finger or roller press before sewing the next seam.
This will keep it flat. Below shows a strip in progress.
After each strip is sewn , attach to the last finished strip until you have your block.
Square it up..and your done.
I think this would make a great pillow????
If you want it bigger ...cut bigger triangles and choose more fabrics.
I have 16 finished blocks....Now what??
I am having a bugger of a time finding a sashing color.
12 of the blocks are from the Modify Tradition quilt-along.
And 4 are my own on the fly blocks.
I can say I have used up every last thread of this "Mezzanine" Fabric.
Speaking of FABRIC. I will announce the GIVEAWAY on Saturday!!!
