What to do wIth spare triangle scraps – video tutorial

I often make corner triangles using squares of fabric so there’s always some wastage. But I always keep my scraps and do something with them.

These are the 2 ways I tend to use the scrap triangles. I hope you enjoy the video:

A good way to use the left over scraps is to use in crumb quilting, or to use in the back of the quilt as a  half square triangles signature block of some sort or as an improv piece.

Fabric collection

I used  fabrics from the Michael Miller black and white FQ bundle which has some great fabrics in it.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

  1. Hi, I have always been afraid to quilt my quilts on the sewing machine instead of tie them. I’ve looked at lots of videos and they never say to use a “darning foot” they just show you what it looks like. Thank you so much for giving it a name and showing how easy it is. They’ve also said to get a roll up flat plastic kids snow slide, cut out a hole for your needle and lay your quilt on top for easy sliding of fabric but I could never find it in stores. Thanks for showing that you dont need one to do this.
