Even with a huge stack of already-cut project kits I had compiled (over 30), I just HAD to gather scrap strips from my stash to make this quilt as soon as I saw the tutorial for it from Missouri Star Quilt Company.
For quite some time I had been just cramming leftovers of strips and other small cut leftovers into a bin. And I do mean CRAMMING. It had finally gotten out of control and I had separated out the 2 1/2 strips from the 2 1/4 strips and the 2 1/2 squares, etc. I had set aside to use a bunch of the small odd bits and cut others with a die-cutter on loan to me.
Then this tutorial came out and I knew right away that this was the project I wanted to use for the 2 1/2" strips. I combined these with new strips I cut from some muslin yardage given to me this summer.
I finished with a wide border from other gifted yardage and put it on the longarm for quilting with a paper pantograph.
Isn't this fun? I can stroll through these square knot blocks and point out the history of the fabrics and what other quilts I had used them in.
This made a SMALL dent in the scrap bin - so much more to go!
