For October in Hive 8 of the Stash Bee, Cristina asked for Elizabeth Hartman’s Knee Socks Quilt Block. There’s a link to Elizabeth’s tutorial on the Modern Quilt Guild blog.
This 12.5″ unfinished section is actually one quadrant of the final 24.5″ block. This is a quick sew, and true to Elizabeth’s intent, I was able to pull everything from my scraps.
Anytime a tutorial calls for joining several strips, I always cut longer strips and trim to size once they’re sewn together. There’s a little more waste, but since I was starting with scraps anyway, I decided it was easier to trim at the end.
