Mini Improv Quilt Squares Scrappy

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

Unlike a log cabin sort of approach where you are trying to line up straight edges I let myself cross over at angles and then trim a bit of excess fabric.

Improv Sewing Method

It gives a more organic, almost floral look – or at least I think it does!

I got a set of acrylic templates 3 or 4 months ago when I started making these and out of the different sizes 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 colour.

I have been enjoying making them and it definitely does help keep the scrap pile at bay…a little!
