There are always bits left over after any sewing project and I just can't throw them out! If you're like me you have stashes of scraps just waiting to become something.
I grabbed a bunch of cute fun prints from one box and decided to do a little improvisational piecing to create a 12" block.
Here are the steps I took to create this sweet design.
I started with this pile of scraps.
After pressing the pieces I began by stitching the little strips together in a very random way alternating widths and colors.
Cut additional wedges from white scraps and a corner piece. I continued attaching wedges until it was larger than 12 1/2". I attached the corner on the curve which was a bit tricky. Next time I will just applique to a square to make it a bit easier.
Trimmed to 12 1/2” and now I’ve got a cute little block to use for a pillow or wall decor.
This was a really fun to make and I look forward to making more scrappy projects.
