New Pattern - Beary Scrappy!
This one took some twists & turns & went through four (or five?) major revisions before I finally decided it was best suited as a "Choose Your Own Adventure" pattern.
I couldn't decide if I wanted to use small or large scraps. Or both? And there are so many ways to make Half Square Triangles (HST) that I couldn't just choose one. After all, I have so many different size scraps and the less cutting some days, the better!
Beary Scrappy has full directions for making this quilt two different ways: Small Scraps (utilizes 1 1/2" - 3 1/2" squares) and Large Scraps (3 1/2" - 7" squares!)
There are also tips for changing the block ever so slightly if you have more scraps of a different size.
And there's a little section at the end with ideas to further change the pattern!
I love seeing how much patterns change with just the slightest variation. It's fascinating!
I had loads of help from testers this time around, who put up with me changing it (however drastically) too many times.

Lani used big scraps & small sashing.
Robin added skinny sashing, too. I think these look like sunflowers against a blue sky 😍
My cover version uses low volume & yellow in both the Large & Small directions.
I also made one with all Large Scraps & added a small sashing between each block.
Kat used a rainbow of small scraps & I cannot get enough of it!!
Maggie's blue/green background is darling & such a fun change!
Laura's lovely green has skinny sashing as well. How fun are those cute little shoofly corners?!
April added fat sashing & cornerstones and skipped the borders! What a change it makes.
I can't wait to see what you make with this!!
