Scrap Plus Week 2 ~ A Quilt Along at We All Sew

Scrap Plus Quilt Along : Fresh Lemons Quilts

For those of you following my Scrap Plus Quilt Along/Tutorial over at BERNINA’s We All Sew (Week 1 and Week 2), I hope you have been enjoying digging through your scraps and making some blocks. This week I’m talking about the quilt top assembly and quilting.

Scrap Plus Quilt Along : Fresh Lemons Quilts

I mentioned last week that these are 12″ finished blocks. Scrappy blocks are always great for quilting bees and group charity quilts.

Another fun and creative quilt idea for using the layout…since these blocks are a standard size, you can easily swap them out and use nine of your own 12″ block designs. I’m such a fan of stars and modern samplers, I think this layout would make a beautiful sampler with some of the blocks from the Solstice Stars Series and Summer Sampler Series.

    I am obsessed with this design. I love it scrappy, but I can think of so many variations. Yum!

    Hi Faith: I’ve finished cutting out strips for 9 blocks. I save all those little pieces of fabric others throw away and I thought this would be a good way to use them up. But I just created more scraps!!!! I’ve got to cut out the background now….after I select it. But I can sew the strips together in preparation for the next step. It will be a great community quilt! Thank you for sharing the pattern.
