WIP: Five and Dime Quilt

 I'm stash busting...and found this quick pattern to help me do just that!
Take a layer cake (the dime: 10") and a charm pack (the nickel: 5")
Center the 5" charm square on top of a 10" square; pin in place. 
Stitch about 1/8"from raw edges of the charm squares.
Pattern from Kansas Troubles Quilters; A Moda Precut Pattern
Next, cut the layered 10" block into fourths to make (4) 5" square segments. 
Mix up the squares and sew back together. 

No need to worry about matching the edges...it's scrappy!!!

This week will find me sewing this into a flimsy and deciding on the border.
What do ya think? A solid stop border with those cute 2" squares??
Thanks for stopping by...as I'm still thinking about what to do.

  1. Cute! I think the solid breaking border would look great with all the little squares around the edges.

  5. If you have enough scraps, you could make a railroad tie border (not sure that's the right name, but basically rectanlges side by side). That would incorporate your scraps and add a different balance :)

  7. Thaks for the support and ideas guys! I have a tote of 2 1/2 inch strips I had cut years ago for hexis....so they will be perfect for a scrappy border! (More stash busting!!)
