TSW: Triangle Scrap Magic... and more
TSW (Technique Sharing Workshop)
Years ago I took a series of classes on wearable art, which used many quilting techniques to create clothing. One of my favorite techniques was randomly piecing fabric until it was big enough to make something out of the "created" fabric. I recently found this post and it reminded me of how I loved doing this, and gave me a good way to use scraps to create a quilt.
The options are endless, of course. Look at these photos to see how this quilter sewed strips and used a square template to create a block.

Do you fold the fabric back upon itself & then the next piece in place? How many layers do you limit it to?

Joyce, this technique is simple piecing of strips of scraps or planned fabric. Scraps are straight cut and then stitched together with a 1/4 inch seam. Keep adding strips until you have created a piece big enough to cut out the shape you need.

Are the strips all the same width

I'm anxious to try these techniques. Do you have directions?

Hi, these are the instructions, but they assume you have experience quilting. Please see the additional information I responded to Joyce. If you are a new quilter, you are welcome to join our free group and attend one of our Zoom Sewing sessions. We chat, sew, and learn from each other.

I love making string blocks. Usually one color family per block. I’ve admired your technique and always thought it was paper pieced. What a nice surprise to see it’s simply placing strips in a pleasing order and just filling in. Sweet.

Christine. This post shows a technique that is simple but can be confusing if you have no experience with improv piecing. We recently shared a video on this blog that did a nice job of demo starting it. You might want to watch it and see if it helps you.
