Strip Set Fabric Scraps Made into Quilt Blocks

My sister gave me some of her scraps. She donated them to the prayer quilt ministry.

These are left over strip sets from a quilt she made for our niece.

I apologize my pictures aren't great, there are a couple of reasons. The main reason is because I sew at night, after work, after the kids get their homework done, after dinner, after soccer practice, after football practice. You name it, I don't sew until other stuff is done. The other reason is because I'm not a good picture taker!

I cut the strip sets into 2 inch strips because I had less waste with 2 inch strips than I would have had with 2.5 inch strips.

This is how they are turning out!

I bought the solid centers and cut them 3.5 inches. Each one is different because of the scrappy strips sets. I'm thinking of adding white sashing between the blocks, so the scrappy strips don't blend together.

This one will be used for the prayer quilt ministry but it's not ear marked for anyone yet. I still have the denim quilt to finish. I've been trying to get ahead on a few tops for the ministry but that's yet to happen! Maybe it will start with this one!

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings to you!
