Here's four Pixie Sticks blocks to show off!
Starting out with scrap strip sets and a pretty background, these are coming together nicely. And hooray for using up scraps and yardage!
For variety, I made up 5 different strip sets, and switched up the placement in each of them.
And for speed of construction and consistency, all blocks were stacked and cut at the same time. Working one strip at a time, the blocks went together easily as they are over-sized to allow for imperfect edge matching. Once everything was sewn together, the blocks were trimmed to the correct size.
I wish I could give you more details about sizes and such, but that wouldn't be fair to the author of the Stash Lab (affiliate link) book. But I think you can get the drift on how this is put together.
The Pixie Sticks pattern calls for the addition of a side strip to each block, to make a table runner. I won't have enough fabric for that and more blocks, so choosing the more blocks option. I'm thinking baby quilt - go figure. Goodness knows I have enough aqua scraps for that!
This is a really fun way to use up those scraps - give it a try!
