Ideas for scraps...Part 2

For my second scrap quilt idea from the strips of scraps.  I plan to sew the remaining strips into colour families or in some variation of coordination.  Once the strip sets are 9 1/2" wide I will then cut those strip sets vertically into 6 1/2" pieces.  Using either strips that are in my 2" bin (that is if I have enough) or using yardage.  I will sew to each side a strip that is 2" wide (shown as the dark blue fabric)  Once pressed this block will measure 9 1/2".  I have come up with 4 settings and I'm curious which one is your favourite...

I could make 36 blocks and put them in a straight set (6 by 6) Let's call this Quilt A


Again 36 blocks (6 by 6) but alternating the rotation... Let's call this Quilt B


On-point Let's call this Quilt C


On-Point with a Twist Let's call this Quilt D

Amazing how many variations you can get with one block...so come on, which is your favourite? 

Until next time...

My vote didn't go through I think. It's B by the way.

I tried to vote for B but it still shows no votes, so I probably didn't do it right!

Jackie said...

I love polls!

I voted for D....LOVE it! I'm thinking there must be a delay in the results? My vote isn't showing.

Nancy said...

I love B and voted for it...

The poll shows only two votes so some must not have caught...

Leah said...

I voted for B, with D a close second.

Ann J said...

You are very creative; thanks for helping me to be! :)

Shirley said...

That was a hard decision. I liked B until I saw C and then I had to choose between C and D. In the end I chose C as it is more unusual to see a string strippy on an angle like that. Great idea again Jane.

What fun -- I really like C and D, but if I absolutely had to make a choice between them it would be for D.

Jen said...

I like C! (I voted) I don't know why, I don't usually like stripey quilts, but I love this one. Go figure!
