Everything but the Kitchen Sink

64 x 44.5

Mary Ann Hruska

With a 5″ square cut from an old telephone book, I put a fabric “string” (a scrap of any color or pattern) diagonally down the middle of the square. Then I started sewing scrappy strings to both sides of the center string. When the paper is covered I press it and trim it. Once I remove the paper backing I have a block made of fabric scraps ready for a new quilt!
