I found this drawing on Pintrest and thought it would be an easy way to use up some more of the scraps. There were no measurements with the drawing which was fun because I could make up my own. I named the pattern “Simply Square Frolic” because it seemed to fit – at least in my mind.
I already had a box of 3″ squares cut out and so this is a way to use them. The 3″ scrap squares are sewn into rows of 6 squares (5 rows) with 1.25″ strips between the rows of squares would make a 16″ block. I decided to do mine in red, blue, and beige squares with solid white strips between the rows.
The blocks go together easily and it is really nice to find a use for more scraps. I have decided to make a total of 12 blocks (3 rows wide x 4 rows long) which will fit nicely on the wall in my dining room.
Here are two completed blocks sewn together. It’s always great when the math works and the blocks fit!
For now, this wall hanging top is set aside to complete another project, but I am looking forward to finishing it. With all the seams, it will definitely be machine quilted.
I can see this pattern “Simply Square Frolic” working for other color combinations or even just total scrap.
Fellow quilters, have you tried this or a similar pattern? If so, did you do it as a scrap quilt, or as a planned quilt?
