Scrap Block #10

My past 9 blocks have had a specific pattern to them, and I had to cut the pieces for them from larger scraps. This block I decided to just throw some tiny scraps on the table and sew them together. After I had enough pieces together, I trimmed it to measure 9 1/2" square so that the finished size would be 9" like all the other scrap blocks.

What you need:

Just the scraps from a project or two!

Put your pieces together in a square the best you can with the pieces you have. Try to get your square to measure 12"-14".

Start sewing the ones that fit together the most first. I started with the middle left section of pieces.

Keep sewing together pieces that seem to fit, trimming as needed. In my next section of pieces, I had a piece that was too long and needed cut.

Keep sewing! It turned out that I didn't need the extra strips I had originally put on top since what I had measured just past 9 1/2".

Trim to measure 9 1/2" square. And it's finished!

39 blocks to go!
