Last Green Weekend


Well - we haven't experience Spring as of yet - maybe this weekend - so hopefully more green will pop up around here nature wise.  BUT this is the last weekend of the RainBow Scrap Challenge using the colour green.   My six 6.5" green log cabin blocks ready to add to that tote.  These are paper pieced (and papers left on until final putting the quilt together) - I like working small, but not crazy - these are 1/2" finished logs!!


I haven't shown this since the beginning - my bricks!  I know , how exciting, geesh!!  But I am cutting several 3.5" x 6.5" rectangles for a brick and cobblestone quilt (free pattern on Bonnie Hunter's site is you are interested).  I'll make the cobblestone parts when we get (or if we get) to black - stashing black strips (as I find them in the scrap bin) for this.

I will be linking up to So Scrappy - pop in on the weekend to see what others are doing with their color scraps.



"The wood is decked in light green leaf.
The swallow twitters in delight.
The lonely vine sheds joyous tears
Of interwoven dew and light."

  1. Love your sweet paper pieced green log cabin blocks. So neat. Had no idea they were only 6.5" blocks.
    I've seen Bonnie's bricks pattern and thought about making it one day. I'll watch you make your's this year and make mine next year.

  2. Really nice log blocks. I'm wondering if I'd be happy doing pieces that small. It was great to finally meet you yesterday. We had a lot of fun and got home at 9:30 pm. We loved Quilt Bug and The Yardstick. We are already looking at the calendar to plan a return trip. We'll get in touch when we do and we can perhaps have lunch. Hugs.

  3. Your logs are very pretty. Log cabin blocks are one of my favorite blocks but I never seem to make them. I have some bricks cut for Bonnie's pattern.
    Your "Greens" are a great stash buster.

  4. I love your log cabins and the smaller the logs the better, I think it makes them so much prettier, half inch though would make me crazy.
