Working on a Scrap Strip Quilt
This is my first attempt at a heart strings strip quilt. I read the instructions on Mary Johnson's blog, blog.maryquilts.com. I sewed strips of fabric on 10" squares of muslin, then trimmed them to 9 1/2" blocks. Notice Batman, Spiderman and Superman strips? No pink or purple fabrics. This quilt is for a grandson when finished. The little white spots you see on each square has two numbers indicating row number and position in that row. I got the idea from someone in blogland. I hope they help me over come my senior moments allowing me to sew the 30 blocks together in the correct order.
Made these last minute Christmas gifts, pillow cases, a few days before Christmas.
I can't wait to try some blocks from the first Scrap Sew Along. Maybe I can raid my scrap box and sew some picnic quilt blocks together this weekend :D
