Another scrappy quilt
I was reading Pleasant Homes blog and she was saying that sometimes she likes to make a scrappy quilt without using a pattern.
She starts with a couple of small rectangular pieces, joins them together and then sews irregular strips in log cabin fashion until the blocks are approximately the size she wants. They are then trimmed to the same size and sewn together - no sashings, no borders.
If you follow the link you will see there is an easy way to make these triangle blocks without actually having to start with triangle shaped pieces.
I had been practicing the principle but had not used the blocks so decided to use them as centre pieces for my scrappy project.
We have a friend who has taken on sole custody of her grand daughter and think that this would make a nice scrappy I Spy quilt for them to share and enjoy together.
