QUILT PIXIE asked how I make the m-a-m(mile-a-minute) blocks. So here's my method...friend Betsy had seen this idea years and years ago in a quilt magazine. They are basically the same as Bonnie's "crumbs". Get out the box, bag or basket with your trimmings and small scraps. You can work with bigger scraps, but small is fun. The purple witch is 2.5" high and about 1 .75" wide. The polka dot is a 1.25" strip I cut to make a house yesterday. Position one scrap on top of another in any configuration you like. Could be more slanty or across the top, or on two sides..it's up to you. NO RULES..and you CAN'T do it wrong. I'm shooting for a 6.5" block..it's a size I like to work with. You get lots of variety across the quilt top. You can sew in ribbon, bias tape, printed words from sewing instructions..almost anything. I've seen quilts make from just selvadges..tedious, I'd think, but original. You know...all those names and colored dots along the edge? So here we go...sew, flip, and press.
