Scrappy Spinner Charity Quilt

 The fourth of my strip quilts for PCQ is underway. The purpose of these is to enable us to use the club's very random and mostly older stash in charity quilts for both kids and adults. The scrappier the better, and by die cutting strips we can kit them up for members to work on during our sew days. 

This one I'm calling Scrappy Spinner, and like the others it uses all 2-1/2" strips.

I'm making the 60 x 80" adult size version using mostly fabrics from the club's stash for the sample of this one. There are at least 60 different prints plus one constant light from my own stash. This sample will be a good indication of what our donation quilts will actually look like.

The large version has 80 blocks that finish at 10 inches. That's a lot of strips. It's also a lot of sewing so this is not a quilt-in-a day fast one to piece. 

For ease of chain piecing I's sewing pairs together then pairs into foursies. I'll end up with more than I need, but that will give me flexibility to move the blocks around. 

I have about half of the blocks sewn. Easy sewing, and as I get batches of blocks done I'm putting them on the wall. I'll arrange them later; this is by no means any sort of final arrangement. 

The PDF for this one is not ready yet. For those of you who have expressed interest in this series of charity patterns, I'll let you know when this one is ready.

  1. This looks fun and easy for those times when my brain is tired, but I need to sew!!!

  2. Great scrap blocks into quilts. I especially like the blues and greens, but like how different each one is. Such great donation quilts.
