Holy Scrap!

This is a quilt I saw on Pinterest. It's called Holy Scrap!

Let's make this the year of the scrappy quilt. "Scrappy New Year!"

Every time you cut a fabric, cut one 2 1/2" strip and stitch it to another. Pay absolutely no attention to the color or style of fabric you add. Just cut a strip from whatever is on the cutting table and stitch it to the previous strip.

Make strip sets of 4 strips each and set aside until you have accumulated several.

I'll do the same and post an occasional pic. Then we will see where that takes us!

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you make a scrap quilt? One strip at a time.
