Scrap Crazy 6"

We had a great time at the Minnesota Quilt Show last week.  We thought those of you who weren't able to attend would like to see the demo that we did.  We showed a fun new template set from Creative Grid called the Scrap Crazy 6".  The set contains 4 templates ,all with grippy backs like all the Creative Grid rulers and together they make a 6" Crazy Quilt block.  A fun way to work from your stash! 

 Here are our demo boards and the crazy quilt table runner that we made with Kaffe Fassett scraps

But what really is fun are all the other blocks you can make by placement of fabric and orientation of your blocks.  Look at the same block made with positioning colors.  This 1st one is a Cut Loose pattern and also shown  in the Scrap Crazy 6" book.  The book offers more ideas for using the templates. The 2nd is the Peppermint Twist block.

We also made some samples from the patterns in the book.  The Sawmill table runner uses only the large trapezoid template.


 The Milky Way table runner uses only the 60 degree triangle.

   The Drops of Jelly table runner uses only the small trapezoid.

We'll have our samples and demo boards on display at the shop, so come take a look.  We made all of our samples from our scraps!  Didn't put much of a dent in them, but we'll keep working on that!  I think this is going to be fun!

Happy Quilting, Susan
