Finish It Friday - Hip To Be Square

When I first started cutting my scraps for the Hip To Be Square Challenge, I really did not think that anything much could be made from these scraps.  I thought some fabrics were ugly, and some scraps I was just tired of using. I also didn't think I could get a nice sized quilt from 2.5 inch squares.

But now I have totally changed my mind and am quite surprised at how cute this quilt turned out.


For the first two blocks, I artfully arranged the squares.  Then I realized it would take me forever to finish, so I sewed the rest together randomly.  

Linking today to Finish it Friday.and to Whoop, Whoop Fridays.

  4. What a fantastic scrap quilt! I'm with you - I'd ditch the artful placement with these tiny squares and just wing it too - turned out great!

  7. I think the top doesn't look totally random. I like how the use of color dictated where the blocks would rest. The column and row look is great!

  8. Sweet arrangement for your blocks…I am totally grooving' to it! I have way more red, blue and green scraps than orange, yellow and purple! This solves the dilemma of different number of scrap blocks!
