    Strip Twist Blocks

    These blocks were made for a block swap I hosted. They use Bonnie K. Hunter's tutorial on strip twist blocks using 2.5" strips. Really great way to use them up with a fun block.



    It is a bit time consuming sewing all the strips together into sets (you need a lot of them to make 12 blocks) but worth it in the end as you can see. I need to square and sew the blocks I received into a quilt or something now.

      NP! I'm totally addicted to Bonnie Hunter's tutorials for scrap usage. After reading about her crumb blocks I sat down one night and made like 20 of them.

      I might cut up all my Christmas fabric and make strip twist quilts out of all of it so it gets used up.

              Wow that looks amazing! I love how scrappy it looks. How big is it? Queen size?

              I had one of the swappers use bali batiks for all of her blocks. They looked really nice together. So many great variations for this block.

                    I usually don't really like the look of some scrappy quilts, but these are awesome. Now I know what I have been saving every little piece for! Thank you for the great picture.

                        Fantastic blocks, Katie. I am also a Bonnie fan and have made a couple of charity quilts from her patterns (bless you, Bonnie). My bucket of scraps is going down, down, down and the quilts are being used to warm and comfort - definitely a win-win.

                          Wow, that is so sharp looking. Excellent piecing, it's just stunning.

                          Thanks for the link, I just ended up spending my sewing time reading all about crumb piecing :-). Really interesting!

                              Thanks! Her technique can make even the beginner quilter (like me) look like a great piecer! Crumb blocks are super addicting. Just wait till you start actually sewing some of those together.
