    simple scrap quilt finish

    Sorry, I have no idea what this block is called. I call quilts like these my "monkey see, monkey do" quilts. I saw something, somewhere, and then tried to do it myself. It came in handy for practicing on the longarm and will probably be donated. Another UFO bites the dust.

    Oh this is a cute quilt. Did you make the squares first or the rail strip blocks, please do tell. This looks like a great stash buster quilt.

    I love the scrappy design!!! I would love to do this for some charity quilts too, but I am not very good with triangles. What size are the triangles and squares??

    Jeanne S, I found it! Here is a link to where I saw the quilt pattern. She calls it Scrappy Gridlock. I'm not sure how I came up with my measurements, but the blocks I made finished around 4.25". It was an experiment, and a long time ago.

    What an interesting design to use up those scraps that build up with nothing to put them into. I think I might have to monkey do too!

    I really enjoyed seeing your quilt. Colorful and happy.

    Eleanor Burns had this quilt pattern in one of her books. She called it Early Fireworks quilt.

    Quilter's Cache has a 12 inch block called Cracker that will produce a similar quilt:

    Kathy T. Yes, that's it! I pieced mine a little differently, but you get to the same place. Good job on finding the name of the block.
