Scraptastic Tuesday 12/9/14

With Linky 2nd Tues @ Month

I'm linking up over at SheCanQuilt for the monthly report on how we handle scraps or how we play with them.


Since I finished up the scrappy log cabin blocks, I needed to find another scrap project.  I found some HSTs with cute little bugs and then pulled that bin that holds my brights scraps.  I found some bits of blue juvenile prints and strips of yellow.  I just started mixing and quickly had 20 cute log cabin blocks that will finish at 9".  I will sash them to make a charity quilt for our quilt guild collection in the Spring.


 While I was pulling those blues and yellows, I discovered a lot of pinks.  They quickly became another variety of log cabin block that need trimming - finishing at 16".  Again, these will become a charity quilt for our guild.

I have some left over flannels that I will use for backing on these.  I like flannel on the back of kid's quilts as they are both cuddly and prevent slipping off the bed.  And you don't need batt with them - for a nice summer quilt.


As I work my Oh,My,Gosh blocks (I am using 1.5" bits instead of 1" - so guess it is only an Oh,My), I have my over stuffed snack barrel of 2" square scraps to use as leader/enders that will be 9-patches for another project.

Sewingly Yours,

  3. You look as if you have a system for using your scraps and keep on top of them - something Leanne and I both have to learn! Thanks for sharing and for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  4. Those blocks are great--what a great way to use up scraps and small pieces. I love working with small pieces like 1.5 inch squares.

  7. You really are good at using your scraps. These will all be great quilts. I have thought about getting the OMG pattern but haven't yet. I like your idea of working with larger pieces.
