I wanted to use up some scrap strips and pieces that were to small to cut down for my squares and bricks ala the Scrap User's System by Bonnie Hunter.
So I sewed them to a used dryer sheet, a fellow quilter told me about using that as my foundation. Sometimes I sewed on the strips before I added them to the foundation piece.
After I had all the fabric in each color way sewn on , I trimmed the piece to 6 1/2 inches square.
I am making brightly colored squares in orange, purple, blue, green , red and yellow.
This is my finished block,it is 12 1/2 inches. The bright fabric I found a few month ago and it was perfect.
The background is a white on white with 2 1/2 inch strips of different designs printed on it. At first I thought I may not like this back ground fabric, but now I love it because it makes it more interesting.
I am going to make 12 blocks and than set them somehow ( this is still in the design stage)
The best part about using used dryer sheets is that when I have to iron the block they smell so nice.
Check back and see what the finished quilt will look like in a few weeks.
