Scrappy Improv Quilt Blocks

You can make yours any size you like. Ideally you need a clear acrylic template to help you frame and square them but other than that you can go for whatever size suits you.

Pick a Size for Your Scrappy Blocks

You don’t have to sew for very long to get your scraps large enough to cut a 3 & 1/2" square out of!

What can you use Scrappy Blocks for?

My intention is to sew them together into a big scrappy quilt when I get enough but there a lots of other ways you could use them too.

Decide if you are going to go totally Scrappy or ‘Frame’ them.

I have a separate scrap bin for whites and neutrals.

Totally Scrappy or Colour Themed?

Some of the squares/blocks I’ve done in this way have had totally scrappy centres. But my favourite way to do this is to use colour themes.

So either I pull out all the greens or blues from my scrap bin and start there or I use the scraps from whatever quilt block I was working on to make these as little ‘child’ blocks almost’.
