I May Have A Scrap Problem... Playing With Triangles!

Hi, all!

I've been spending a lot of time recently starting new projects, and most of them with new fabric - but I have been working on a collaborative project over the last few days...

...which is a scrappy project!  A simple signature quilt, made using black and red corners.  And of course, making those corners left me with some bonus HSTs - so today I decided to play with some arrangements to make a matching pillow cover.  

There's this basic layout...

Or this one, made a little punchier by alternating the red and black in the colored bands.

Then I decided to try it a little off center...

...but it felt too off center, so I shifted the center a little further in.  I think I'm happy with this layout, so the next step will be to trim all the HSTs to 2.5" and put it together!  This will be a quick project, and I usually would have had it finished, but it was my day to spend a few hours with my eldest granddaughter Lilli, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow!  

What have you been doing with your scraps this week?  Enquiring minds want to know!




  1. ALL of the layouts look awesome!! Good luck with your choice.

  2. This is one of my big projects for some fabrics I have stashed, and some that are scraps. One day soon.... I love seeing the different arrangements. It is so much fun!

  3. It's so much fun to play with the different layouts for the blocks! I like the last one, too.

  4. Both quilt and pillow are looking great. No scrap usage this week. LOL

  5. I'm always working with scraps, my favorite type of quilts. I just finished a sampler QOV for my son and now I'm working on a scrappy strip quilt for a children's charity I support. I also have a "scrap problem." LOL

  6. Hmmm...I have a pack of red and black fat quarters that have been calling to me. I think they've been saying "make us into HSTs." What am I waiting for???

  7. I would love that last one in a whole quilt layout. I finished my last scrappy Irish Star and am ready to put the top together after almost two years!

  8. So beautiful.Love all the setting!!
