Scrap Mixology : Two Bits

 Behind the scenes, I have been working diligently to complete more of my newest pattern series and their supporting quilts.  

Today I am ready to announce my second Scrap Mixology module - Two Bits.



This module is to help you turn some of your scrappy strings into some fun and colorful quilts.  
You might remember this RSC quilt I finished in 2019.  
This quilt was the inspiration for this pattern sheet.




The Scrap Mixology pattern series all follow the same format.  They are designed to help you sew up your scraps so don't expect to find yardage requirements (not that you can't pull fabrics out of your stash).  Each module is designed around a standard block with cutting and sewing instructions for the block.  There is also a convenient table with block requirements for standard quilt sizes to help you determine how many blocks you need to make for the size quilt you desire.

In subsequent pages, I share some ideas on how to use color and block placement/rotation to create lots of fun layout designs.  Hopefully these ideas will trigger some ideas of your own.

Also included in the pattern are additional ideas on how to change the look of your block through some simple changes.  I include new cutting requirements for these ideas and share how this change affects the look of a quilt.  

So one block can be made into dozens of layouts!
You become a Scrap Mixologist like me :)



In fact, I have recently shared a quilt using the Mixology concepts published in this module.  This soft scrappy quilt swapped out the 9-patch with some orphan blocks and was laid out using a stacked block design.

Essentially the same block but with two very different looks.



One of the materials included in the Two Bit pattern is the formula for figuring the inset triangles for on-point or diagonal block layouts.  I always have to hunt for this so I am happy to know I can easily locate it now just by referring to my pattern.  


All of my Scrap Mixology available patterns (including Two Bits) can be purchased through either my Payhip pattern shop or through my Etsy store.  Once you pay, they can be immediately downloaded and you can start sewing those scraps.


Enjoy your weekend by sewing up those scraps!

Having the formula for the inset triangles for on-point layouts is worth it alone! It's lovely to see how the module can be used in two different quilt layouts in the post, too. Congratulations, I know how much hard work goes into a release!
