It’s time for the Mile a Minute Quilt……
So- you have this mongo pile of fabric scraps and you aren’t really sure what to do with them.
They don’t make sense. They are not equal in size or shape. They are kind of all over the place.
A mile a minute quilt can be the answer! They aren’t hard and great for beginners. There isn’t any special ruler or technique or thinking for that matter! It’s great for just sitting and sewing without a lot of heavy duty thoughts and math.
Today I’ll be showing you how to take all of these scraps and sew them together. It’s kind of like making your own fabric. Fun!
big pile of fabric scraps – can be from a previous project or a scrap bag pile
orphan quilt blocks – these are great to just stick in randomly when you are sewing a long. No rhyme or reason. Finding a random block here and there is kind of fun!
