It’s messy …

…but I love using these leftover bits and pieces. When I was sorting I realized I had a number of longer pieces that were trimmed off backings or were leftover bindings so I decided I’d frame each 4 block section with one fabric … if that makes sense? This one will have 48 blocks and I made a good start today.


  1. Great idea using one colour for the frames – thanks for the tip – looking good so far 🙂

  2. It looks great. You have made many that have been so pretty. I saw one on Pinterest that had black and white fabrics in the sashing, really pretty. And these are good for our leftovers.

  3. It’s the same here Mary, and rather bizarre. I am pretty orderly, a neat-nick by nature. But when it’s time to sew a string quilt or two, it’s a big mess…and I’m happy as a clam! It’s such fun picking through all those lovely scraps. Your blocks with the matching 4th rounds are terrific.
