I'm using red, white, and blue scraps from my collection of fabrics, and also some recycled cotton shirts. I love this fabric with the words to the Pledge of Allegiance on it.
This is a really easy pattern- you start off with 2.5" strips, 18" long. I sewed 40 strips together, and then sub-cut into long 2.5" strips. So far the body of the quilt you see here measures 62" x 80". I'm going to add some borders, and I also saved 3 strips of 2.5" squares to put in the borders, too.
And, here's a table runner I put together on Saturday (just the top- it's not quilted yet).
I used some leftover blocks from the border of this quilt:
Very easy & fast since the half-square triangle blocks were already done & just waiting for a home.
