Improv Quilt Squares Made With Scrappy Fabric Pieces 

One way I like to cut down on my growing scrap fabric pile is by making what I call my scrappy quilt squares.

Out of the different sizes that were in the pack this just seemed a manageable size! 

Three and a Half Inch Squares

Because I have a quilt in mind for them, I am trying to use either white or black on the edge of each square and the colored scraps in the middle.

Background Fabric

The idea is that when I sew them together it will look like little peekaboo color on a somewhat homogenous background.

I start with two pieces not necessarily exactly the same size, but relatively small – crumbs essentially.

Here is how I do it:

Then I pick another piece and maybe lay it at an angle. I’ve show above where I would sew and what I would trim off.

Then repeat again with the next piece. I personally iron in between each piece.
