Scrappy Doll Quilt Tutorial

After putting together the pineapple quilt block, I was a little frustrated with this pile of fabric and leftover triangular pieces. I have a hard time throwing fabric in the trash…especially when it is kind of bigger, which some of these were.
After looking at a few options {over 50 different ideas for orphan quilt blocks} I decided to sew up a doll quilt.

Supplies for sewing:
leftover Triangles from the Pineapple quilt block or your fabrick stash

strips of fabric- background 2 1/2″ strips

Doll Quilt Instructions:

Dig through your scraps of cut-offs and find triangles that are similar in size.


1) Sew your leftover pieces together. Mine were triangle so I sewed them together to make a square quilt block.

2) Square up your blocks {if needed}

3) Sew borders with the 2 1/2″ strips to make bigger.


4)  Start laying the new blocks side by side and sew them together.  Some might be a big bigger than the others, that’s all right.

5)  Trim off the extra to make the one strip all the same size


6)  Repeat this process until you have 3 rows {or how many you’d like}

7)  Sew the rows together
