A Little Scrappy Diversion

I've worked on the red and white double nine patch Irish Chain quilt during every spare moment this whole weekend and needed a little diversion. You can see some of the red and white to the left of these blocks.

I used the tutorial for Crumb Quilts found HERE on Quiltville.com. I just pulled out a handful or two of all kinds and shapes of scraps and went to sewing. When each square was big enough, I laid a 6 1/2 inch see through plastic square on top and trimmed around it with my rotary cutter. Before I knew it I had 4 done. I'm not sure how I will use them yet, but they make a great leader/ender project.

My first love in quilting is scrap quilting, so I love these! Looks like another WIP for the list.

I love your scrappy blocks! What a great project to use up scraps... did you just sew them together or did you use a foundation of some kind?

I love those blocks Debbie! I have started a drawer of 'strips', as I saw a beautiful string quilt recently and would love to try to make one! Your blocks remind me of it!
