April Scrappy Block

I hope you have been enjoying the scrappy blocks for the last few months.   I still have more scraps, and every time I turn my back on the little boxes - they explode!!!

This month we are back to the 2 ½ inch strips!

Method  1:
The easiest way to construct this block is to use width of Fabric strips,

 For this sample I pulled 1 red 2 ½ x 41 inch, and 1 white 2 ½ x 41 in white strip.

Stitch the strips together, press, and then sub-cut into 4 set of 10 inch pieces.

Then you stitch the 10 inch pieced into a strata – and that is your block. 

It should measure 10 inches by 16 inches

Method 2:

Pull 4 - 2 ½ x 10 inch dark strips, and 4- 2 ½ x 10 in light strips and stitch together.

This is the quilt that I made with these blocks – It measures 58 ½ by 80 inches 

Ta - da - that is such a fun way to use up your strips!  and of course you could use a jelly roll, or yardage if you didn't have scrappy strips!!

As always - this pattern is a downloadable pdf file in my Craftsy Store ( for free)

And ta-da.... I even had a chance to quilt it:
