Scrappy Wednesday


I worked thru that pile of scraps that my daughter passed on to me and I was able to get thirty blocks to 7.5".  The irony with these scraps as most of them are scraps that I gave her now recycled back to me.  Some of it was very small, very frayed, and it is OK to throw out when necessary.

I pulled all the black, gray, and what was left of the w/w - this will be used in another project.  But don't worry as I still plan to work those log cabins up to size.

I pulled a drawer of scraps that need working down.  I'm sure there is plenty to finish up these blocks as well as cut down into the barrel system for better use.  Actually my plan it to EMPTY this drawer.

Our guild has gone into shut down while our counties are experiencing a rise in Covid cases - safety first.  I was delighted when Diane stopped for a little visit to show what she did with some of the Estate Gifted fabrics to the guild.  She enlarged this block pattern 3x's to make the large bear and then bordered with this great bear printed alphabet.

She's enjoying her new Jazz2 machine and her quilting shows more on the back which is coordinating bear prints from the donation.  What a cute quilt!!

She's still stitching the binding down on this one, but more gifted fabrics using the Twin Sister's tutorial found on my page - HERE.  This is a great scrap buster and very quick block to make.  Thank you for sharing Diane and for the much needed visit.

We are warming up for the next few days (40's), but the yard is an ice rink so I am staying home and getting those log cabins done.

Sewingly Yours,

Diane's bear quilt is adorable. I love the alphabet border. The log cabin blocks are a perfect choice to sew on a wintery day.

We got above 40 degrees today, so I walked to my hairdresser's for a haircut. It was good to get out for some fresh air and exercise. No snow on the ground here, but I guess the cold and maybe snow return next week. I'm seeing lots of log cabins lately.

Log Cabins from gifted scraps that were gifted back to you? Too funny! You did a great job on starting to use them up in these blocks.

Great use of those fabrics, both by you and by your friend!

Your scrap drawer looks like mine and you've made me curious about the barrel system.
