How to Make a Low Volume Scrappy Triangle Quilt Block

This post is for all of us scrap-loving quilters and I am a proud member of that club.  As soon as I saw this charming block from Sew Me Something Good, I knew I would be writing about it.

Not only does this block incorporate the trendy low-volume look, it uses up small scraps.  Seriously, what could be better?!

To make her 12 inch block, the author uses various small squares and rectangles of fabric.  The largest cut is three inches square so that gives you an idea of how many scraps are in this block.

With all of the triangles set against rectangles, this technique makes the block twinkle and gives it plenty of movement.

I have a hunch I will be digging into my scrap bins shortly to make this fun block. And if you are interested, I added up all of the different scraps and there are 48 used in this block!  Wowsa, that is my kind of scrappy goodness.
