Strawberry Jam

The June 2019 Fat Quarter Shop’s Sew Sampler had a cute charm pack of fabric from Corey Yoder and a two bonus patterns from the book Sunday Best Quilts by Corey Yoder and Sherri L. McConnell. Instead of a pillow, I decided to make a small wall hanging. For the setting triangles and border

For one of the pillows, I saw that there was going to be leftover strips, so I did some math and figured I could get 4 of the same sized strips from one charm square. I also figured that I could make 56 blocks with the strips. This setting only needed 50.

I like pieced backs and I did not buy enough fabric for binding and backing.

A pieced back

For the pieced strip on the backing, I used the leftover squares that were approximately 1.5″. I didn’t want to cut a whole bunch of 1.5″ white squares, so I cut a strip and sewed the squares to the strip. I then pressed them away from the strip.

I then cut the strips flush with one of the edges to seperate them. I did not worry about trimming the other side.

Trim the squares

After all the blocks were cut off the strip, I then matched the trimmed sides to make a four-patch unit

I then trimmed the wonky edges off

Time to trim

I then used the Itty Bitty Eighths ruler. Look how cool it is:

What a cool ruler!

I even prepped the binding :
