Framed Scraps Quilt Block – for Precious Fabric Scraps!

Have you ever had some oddly shaped scraps you just can’t bear to throw out?  This is the block for these.

The block is called Framed Scraps and we are essentially going to sew a ‘frame’ around our scraps.

Materials Needed:

– Special Fabric Scraps  – Black fabric strips  – White background fabric  – Clear quilting ruler with 1/2" marking – Squaring Rulers

Step 1:

Pick some pretty fabric scraps in random shapes and sizes that have straight edges.

Choosing your Fabric Scraps.

Sew a black strip to each side of your 'focus' scrap, trimming as you go so that each side of your frame is 1/2". from your seam line.

Step 2:

Sewing your Frame.

Sew right sides to right sides using a quarter-inch seam allowance.

Continue adding black strips and trimming to size all the way around your scrap. This will make your ‘frame’.

Step 3:

Once your black frame is all trimmed start adding white scraps (or your chosen background fabric) to one side of your block.

Adding your Background Fabric

Press and trim to follow any straight line in your block and then repeat on another side until you have surrounded your frame with background fabric.
