Barbara's Scrap Quilt
While sorting through my supplies, I realized that I have a lot of scraps. The scrap drawer was getting hard to close because it was so full. I looked through various books and magazines, searching for the right pattern, and found Four Squares on the Quilter's Cache website. The instructions are precise and clear, and I took a cue from the pattern and used up some of my blue and green scraps for the bigger pieces, and yellow, white and gold for the smaller pieces.
I've made a lot of headway so far. Each block is 12" finished, which is a nice size for other projects as well. I've been thinking these would make nice hot pads. I actually had to go buy more yellow fabric for this project, but I'm using up lots of blues and greens and I like the scrappy look. I think this will keep me busy for awhile.
