Scrappy One Patch, Nine Patch, Friendship Star, Four Patch, Pinwheel and Square in a Square
Lots of the new modern styles still incorporate the above blocks with bigger proportions and innovative layouts.
Can you think about how you can use these traditional blocks in a different way to be a little more contemporary with your design and still use up your stash?
The Scrappy One Patch block shown above uses up many pieces of fabric, you could "super size it" just like fast food and make it quick with strip piecing. Or break it up into different parts. An innovative layout could look like the one below from Crafsy's "Inspiring Scrap Quilting Ideas" blog post:
This is what you can make with 4 large squares of fabric and 2 attempts at the magic 8 method--- not just pinwheels anymore!
Happy Tuesday! 😊
