    So true, that is the impression I got after looking at it lol. I had to tear some more fabrics for more light blocks. I did a bunch of those yesterday. Today I am going to work on the dark blocks some and hopefully I will get to sew a couple rows to show that part of the Tut.

    I went looking for more ideas for scraps and string quilts yesterday, I found a great one and will make a new thread when I start that one. In the meantime I found lots of scrap quilts named Chevrons and Zigzag etc and they are on the same order as this one, only instead of having four or five strips in a block, they consisted of only one strip cut on the 60 d angle and they looked lovely too...they had dimension even though they weren't too careful of value, just lots of color.....just check out Pinterest and do a search.

    Oh go look at this "Settlers Trail" in this thread.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...n-t224964.html

    I usually get a bit distracted when doing a lot of blocks and take a sidestep to do something else. I have already figured out this pattern and am working on the middle right now and writing it down. Three different blocks make up this main block.

    I will just do one set and go back to my project at hand and when I get that top done I will make a new thread for this one. Isn't it grand?

    I am having my afternoon mocha. This is how I make it. Half cup of brewed coffee (from this morning) and two teaspoons of Nestles instand milk chocolate mix, and fill the rest of the cup with milk and heat.

    Scraps and crumbs lol.....just more quilting lingo....there is a list of quilting abbreviations somewhere on this board. I know I have to go check it now and then when something is unfamiliar to me.

    I love your quilt. I really need to do something with all of my scraps. I have them all crammed into a drawer and I can hardly shove them in anymore. I guess it is time to use them up. I'm not sure if I have enough strips to make this one. Will have to check. Looks like a good way to use them all up. I also like the other quilt you showed. Might have to try that one too.

    Good for you Maw, remember to rip on the straight of grain.

    Ok, I decided to put two rows together to see if my plan is going to work. I said no Y seams or set ins right?

    Flip the top dark block over the light block, take them to your table and line them up, look and see the two little points hanging out? this is the way it should look. But, to be on the safe side, put a pin through the 1/4 ins seams of both blocks and pin both ends to make sure.

    Look at the second pic, I am checking to make sure the blocks will line up. The third pic shows all the blocks sewed in the first row.

    Sew the second row, the same way. Always sew with the dark block on top, because that is a straight strip. Press seams one way on the first row and the other way on the second row. When you sew them together they will nestle nicely. The third pic shows the second row flipped over the first row. Sew that seam.

    The fourth pic shows the two rows sewed together. Easy as all get out. I will need to add more blocks to row one, of course lol. I can just sew willy nilly until I run out of blocks. I have a pile of them and all the undesirable are gone lol.

    I really have no idea what to call this quilt really. Diamond Scrap comes to mind. Well, I am done with it. I turned out to be 66x90 more or less. It will look nice on a single bed. I had no idea it would come out so pleasing as I was fixing to dump that whole load of fabric strips lol.

    As it is I really love it. I used all the undesirables and just had to add a few more to make this size.

    I will bind it just the way it is.

    Wow! I like it. I kind of like the diamonds that go across instead of all of them being up and down. It's kind of funkier that way.

    How about calling undesirable made desirable.

    yea, I kinda like it too. I think even without those dark strips on the vertical ends, it still has a 3D look about it.
    Would love to see the finished top!
