Scraps and Stripes Block Size Finished 9”

RST - right sides together

RS - right side

WS - wrong side

Fabric requirements:

Background Striped Fabric: (1) 10”square cut into (4) 5” squares or length of

fabric which you can get (4) 5” squares.

Scraps: (8) pieces no smaller than 1 1⁄2” x 1 1⁄2” no bigger than 3” x 3” can be

square or rectangular in shape. I used two different colorways, but you can you

whatever you want.

This is my take on the pattern from Jenny Rekeweg’s Diamond in the Rough, I

modified the look by using stiped fabric.

Free pattern is available online at: Freepatterns.com

This is a sew and flip technique. Place a scrap RST on the top left corner of a

background fabric, sew a diagonally across, place another scrape on the opposite

bottom corner RST and stitch diagonally across. Making sure your striped

background fabric is in the same direction, continue with the next block. You will

make 2 sections with a scrap on the top left and bottom right and 2 sections with

the scrap on the right top and left bottom.

Press gently towards the scrap.

Flip over the section (WS) and square up to 5”.

Flip over the section (RS) and now trim the corner waste fabric a 1⁄4” from the seam.

To make the top section; sew one square with the scraps on top left and bottom

right and one square with the scrapes right top and left bottom. For the bottom

section sew one square with the scrapes on the top right and bottom left and one

square with scrapes on the top left and bottom right. Press open seam.

Sew the top and bottom sections together (be mindful of scrap orientation). Press

seam open.
