Better yet, get in the habit of cutting leftovers into 2 1/2″ strips and squares whenever you’re cutting for a quilt project. In time you’ll have a marvelous selection of squares to choose from for projects like this one.
The quilt, by Deanna at Wedding Dress Blue, is a simple project for beginning and experienced quilters alike. It’s so easy to make that you may find yourself making more than one.
Change the look by changing the background fabric and the main color focus of the fabric squares. Just about any color you love will blend with scraps (whether they are color coordinated or not) and produce a stunning quilt.
