Scrappy Rescue: Coin Quilt(s)

Once I started working on the jelly roll leftovers, I realized there was enough to make TWO coin style baby quilts, plus some leftover for another idea.

So, I cut all the pieces I could into strips 4-1/2″ wide.

And set the leftovers aside to be cut into 2-1/2″ squares, or sets, where possible. Smaller pieces will be cut into 2″ and 1-1/2″ squares.

Using every bit practical (NOTE: I didn’t say “every bit possible” because I have my limit, and that limit, most of the time, is 1-1/2″. Everyone needs to choose their own limit, and it can change, but having a limit keeps things from getting out of control in a way that has you keeping fabric you will never use.).

  1. I do save anything over 1.25″, but I put them in scrappy Vortex kinds of quilts, ala Crazy Mom. It all adds up eventually! I’m thinking of a birches quilt, too. But for squares, my limit is 2.5″, as you know. =)

    These are going to be great, and I’ll love seeing what you make with the left overs. This morning, a friend brought me a bunch of black and red pieces that came her way. I’m interested in seeing what they become, too. LOL
