Design Wall Monday and #475!

Design Wall Monday and #475!


I started this project at a quilt retreat in January, it’s from the book, Scrap-Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett.  This one is called, “A Little Tangy”.  All the quilt patterns in this book use 2 1/2″ strips.  As you know, I’ve been cutting up my scraps into strips and squares so this is perfect.  For this project I’m using bright strips because I love bright quilts and I have lots of fabrics in this category!

Notice the two odd blocks?  I had to make 2 wrong before I realized it!  That’s what happens when you stop and start projects!

Now, I just have to decide how big to make this quilt!  I have lots of strips cut so I’ll keep going for now.




I appreciate pattern instructions that include pressing instructions.  For this block the seams are rotated clockwise, making the little 4 patch in the intersection.  If you do each block the same, the seams will nest when they are sewn together.

I’m still working on my Trash to Treasure Pineapple quilt and the small fabric ends from this quilt are going in the pile for pineapple blocks and a few Postage Stamp Charms.

Check out Judy at Patchwork Times for other Design Wall Monday projects!

On another note, Saturday, I quilted my 475th quilt on my longarm!

Thanks for looking and just keep stitchin’ !

  1. 475?! Amazing!

    Your Tangy quilt is so much fun to look at! I really like Kim’s designs and have used them several times myself.

  2. Linda, congratulations on completing so many quilts! I know the effort that took!

    I really love this block, but I’ve never seen it done with 2 1/2″ strips…now I definitely need to get the book!

  3. Thanks! It’s a very fast construction as long as you do them all the same! There are several good quilts in this book. 🙂
