    Starting a Scrappity-Do-Dah!-mini tut @ post #29 pics start @ post #53

    Well, it's going to be a while before I finish this one so thought I'd show you the beginnings. This is a pattern by the GinghamGirls but I made my own pattern as I have a lot of 3" squares of feedsacks and others already cut I wanted to use up. It turns out to be very little waste in this size even after adding the center strip you can still square it up to a 3" block! I'm showing a pic of the next row as I'll be using up lots of UFO string blocks from a long time ago. Then it'll have a row of petite 9P blocks and the final row will be back to the original pattern of 3 rows or so. The sewing of this block must be careful because of the points all meeting when 4 blocks come together. Other than that, it's a great pattern to showcase many different fabrics! I just love this pattern and have wanted to make it for some time. Hope you enjoy it like I do!Name:  Scrappity Do Dah.jpg

    Hey . That's great. I realy like the strip blocks. The S-D-D I just finished has 6" squares and uses up lots of scraps.
    Yours is really cool. I love looking at all the different fabrics. Isn't this block fun and simple with a great look? Anything goes with this one.

    It looks very pretty. Just think it is costing very little to make.

    Beautiful, don't know if I would have enough patience for this one. You are doing a wonderful job on it and with the colors also.

    n2--simply charming as always. The strippy border will add a lot of movement to the center. Keep us posted.
