I have another scrappy project to show you. For this project I typically select fabric which has a straight edge on one end and an uneven edge on the opposite side. Here is an example of what I mean.
If there is enough space, I cut a 1 1/2" inch strip from the scrap piece. You can see that there is enough fabric on the left side to cut out a 1/2" hexagon.
Here I have a few strips ready to sub cut into 1 1/2" squares.
Here they are sub cut into squares.
I add them to to a bag and use them as leader enders for when I am piecing.
In no time at all you get a bunch of pretty scrappy blocks. I am doing them in rows of 10 x 10. I am also alternating the block from a light to a dark. It just makes the block read better.
I plan on adding a solid looking bright fabric as sashing. Maybe a scrappy four patch as a corner block. The options for scrap piecing are endless. I love a variety so I will cut different shapes out of the one piece of scrap fabric.
