the lowly square



I have a bunch of 3 1/2 inch squares that I need to 
use up
and a lot of them are old fashioned prints like these
so I pulled a loose "floral" theme
and sewed them 2x2   4x4   8x8



\
into strips like this




and then laid them out to see how she looked
this may be a lap quilt for me
I may make it 16 blocks wide  
48 ish wide sounds about right

so I may need to cut up some more scraps that are in 
this category to finish this top
are you playing in your scraps?

  1. Oh I love those "old-fashioned" prints--I have a box that I am uh (hoarding?) saving for a special lap quilt for myself too. My present one is getting pretty worn...hugs, Julierose

  2. Nice looking scraps. I use small florals for my FGV blocks, when I have them :)
