    Scrappy blocks quilt

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...s-t260265.html
    I had posted a tutorial (link above) for a scrappy pattern and showed how to make the block. Someone on another thread asked me if I could show how the whole quilt looks.

    This is a charity quilt I made from a bunch of more-or-less 1-1/2" wide strips, and didn't recut to make them exactly 1-1/2", just used everything. Usually the top and bottom borders are wider to make a 56" length, but ran out of fabric so pieced in the small light green. Not perfect, but I think it works so-so. LOL Thanks for looking.
