When I returned home, I turned this idea into blocks. The quilt has only four unique blocks, making it very easy to resize. This pattern provides three quilt sizes, but you can customise them for your requirements.
In the first sample quilt I pulled out a lovely charcoal solid from my stash and put it together with pink, red and orange scraps from my scrap basket. This quilt lends itself to using up the odds and sods you might have lying around.
