Scrap quilt class


One of the ideas I presented at the class yesterday was the 2 bricks sewn together and then placed on the design wall.  Here they are with a straight setting.







I like them on point even better.  The zig zags can run vertical or horizontal.  I have a lot more strip sets sewn to cut into squares so I can make different color bands.  I had a bunch of 3" strips left from some other project and none of them were full width strips.  Most were 12" or shorter.  If anybody in the area is interested, we are doing another class on the fourth Tuesday in July.  If we get more than 6 people I'll set up a Saturday class too.  I forgot to get my camera out and take pictures.  I promise to try to remember at the next class.

Great class! Design wall - note to self, gotta get me one of those. As usual your colors make the quilt and blog post. Wish I could attend your next class, but not exactly "in the area."

Great designs and blocks.

On point seems to always give a really nice presentation.

So simple, so elegant! A visual lesson in value!

I love a simple design, it can be so ordinary but so fabulous. I found some charm pack squares that my DIL gave me. This would be a great way to put them together. They are 4 inch squares. Would you cut them in half?

This is beautiful! What a wonderful way to use up those batik scraps. Note to self: add this to my inspirations file!

Such a simple block with such a stunning result(s)!

Ooo, I like this block in both settings. Wish I lived in the area!

I've always loved quilts made with this simple block, especially the on-point setting. This may be a good way to reduce some of my precut strip bins that are overflowing.

What a grand difference 'on point' makes with those blocks. Like 'night and day'.

Love the on point layout. Hopefully soon I will find my way back to the sewing machine.

This is a wonderful idea. I'm different, I guess, because I like the straight set better! This is great with the batiks, and you're giving me ideas again!

Nancy said...

Great idea and easy quilt. Think I will make one.

What a clever way of doing zig zags! Also like the way the colours are scrappy, but blend in together.
