Scrappy Squares


Scrappy Squares is a quilt I made with my 2 1/4" squares. 
 There is no pattern so I thought
 I would share with you how I made this quilt.


Example of a green block 
From my 2 1/4" green squares I chose 25 squares with many different values.  I placed them from light to dark diagonally.  If you take a picture with your camera and turn it into a black and white scale photo you can see the values and may need to change some of the squares around. Sew the squares together to form a 25 block patch.

 I used a small zigzag stitch to applique leaf like petals onto each block.  Notice the chain of petals that run diagonal are on the dark to light shades of red from corner to corner and the two leaf petals in each corner are on the medium shades of red. The appliques need to stay 1/4" away from the side of the square so when you sew the blocks together you will not catch the petals in the seam allowance.

I used the colors of the rainbow to move from color to color when laying out the quilt.  Notice the flowers are on the medium values of where 4 blocks come together and where the chain connects there are light and dark values in every other row.

Gray blocks were used around the quilt to border or frame it.  
Petal chains are quilted in the gray blocks to continue the  the petal chain idea. 

This was a quick "how to" but maybe it has inspired you
 on the next quilt you make.
