Not QUITE square

This baby quilt is ALL about using UP!
I love a good scrappy quilt!




For this quilt I began with ONE 3"x 3" white square.
I added random sized strips all around "LOG cabin style".....
(I have lots of random fabric strips!!)

Then I trimmed the block to 7 1/2" X 8 1/2"
Not QUITE square.    ;)

I then added 3" strips between rows
and 3" borders all around.

I love the way the white squares float around!
I love that I didn't have to do much cutting and matching seams!
I loved using LOTS of scraps!!
solids....checks....plaids....stripes.....and cute baby prints!!!

Happy sewing!!

  11. It's scrappy, but also pulled together by the use of primarily blues and orange. It has a soft color quality, nice for a baby quilt. Love the white square that move and jiggle a bit. Good going!
