It was about time I started a scrap project. I have seen this block around quite a bit lately so I wanted to try my own scrappy version of it. It is a traditional block called Rolling Stone. Mine above finishes at a large 21 inches! I will only need 6 of these lovelies to make a lap quilt.
I decided just to use blue scraps in this block and I will likely make the other 5 blocks a different colour each ... although Wow I think all blue would look pretty too. I don't often use white in my quilts, but I love how fresh and clean the white with polka dots looks here as the background.
So, do you want to make 1 or more too? It's easy! Here's all you need.
The little blocks making up the one big finished block are 4 inches each. You will need to make 12 HST blocks that have scraps on both halves. Then 16 HST blocks that are a piece of scrap on one half and the background fabric on the other half. Then you will need to cut 8 squares of background fabric. This gives you 36 blocks total ...
This was just my little sketch I made to guide me. Anyway, you can likely see in it how I arranged things, or you can easily tell in the photo below.
Fast, easy, fun!
I think I'll make a green one next ... although the idea of another blue one is very tempting ...
