Easy Quilt Block For 2.5" Strips & Squares
"This is a super easy scrap busting quilt block. It's beginner friendly and uses up your leftover 2.5" jelly roll strips, mini charm pack squares, as well as any scraps you have cut down yourself to that popular 2.5" measurement! You knew they would come in handy one day! This is a simple step by step tutorial to make an 8.5" quilt block using traditional piecing methods. The post also includes a video tutorial as well as an option for getting a free foundation paper pieced pattern for a slightly larger size of this block that I am using as part of my Scrap Blocks Quilt Along."
