This was a quick scrappy project – well maybe not exactly a project as it’s something I wanted to try but not sure how far I’ll take it!
after trimming became this:
And when all the elements are added becomes this:
So this is truly scrappy but what happens if it’s ‘controlled’ scrappy?
I had these trimming left over from a project and really not enough to do anything with but let’s try another New York Beauty:
These New York Beauties are small – see the ruler to the left? 4½” !
So which do you like better? I think I like the totally scrappy better. One thing about making these so small? I think it’s time to get the 1/8” seam down. the 1/4” really is too large for these small of pieces. The curved seams I will trim!
So another sort of scrappy project this week came from making these:
The red & white is cut from strip sets and when I got to the end of as many as I could cut, I still had about 4” or so left on the strip set. So I cut them into strips to make a 4 patch square and those went into these:
This square measures 6 1/4” so I will add strips to frame this out and make it a 10” (finished) block.
Hope you all have a Happy Scrappy Saturday!
