I found a really cute pattern and started sewing, but the blocks were just taking FOREVER to put together (there were a lot of triangles, and bias edges drive me nuts!). I also realized it was so scrappy that when I was putting blocks together it was starting to look a little, … well… ugly.
Usually I like to give scrappy baby quilts. If it’s not so matchy-matchy and perfect, no one feels bad about throwing it on the floor for baby to roll around on, and it can be tossed in the washer if it gets a little grubby. I like my baby quilts to be USED! Plus, it’s easy to repair if the binding ever wears out or it tears.
So I’m sitting there looking at all these block pieces and I’m absolutely hating working on this quilt — what do I do??
I pulled out my bin of fabric strips, made some strip sets, and cut out some simple rail fence blocks. The quilt tops went together so easy-peasy, even I was surprised at how fast I got these 2 quilt tops together!
