Hi girls, Mary here. I've been lurking around the corner and decided that y'all were having way too much fun. I just had to jump in. I love this concept, since I can never throw away a piece of fabric over an inch in size. Plus the fact that I take my scissors or rotary cuter and whack off the selvages, leaving a couple of inches along with the selvage. So now I've got bags of strips for my sewing pleasure.
|So now comes the fun part, free style piecing, as I like to call it. Without further ado, the results of my 15 minutes a day.|
I made a log cabin quilt in 1980. My first attempt at quilting. That was enough for me for the next 15 years. Too many rules and not enough fun. This is way more fun. I'm thinking of using various blues for the sashings, sorta like I've got going on in the picture. We shall see what the process becomes, huh?
I love this. Were all your scraps already in strips or did you do that before starting?
I like the wonky logs, more my style;)
Those will look nice against the blue sashings.
Beautiful scraps and nice blocks. Welcome!
Well it certainly helps to have great colors to work with.....this is gonna a be a real keeper of a quilt!
What wonderful blocks. I love the variety! Fantastic!
Looks like fun. I like the bright colors.
Nancy, I did have most of the strips cut. Thanks bunches for the great comments, y'all.
nice blocks! I love how they look against the blue backgrounds, too!
Gorgeous! Your scraps AND your blocks!
Love your log cabins!
Gorgeous! I'm definitely going to try this.
It's so easy to get suckered into this, isn't it? Welcome to the party! I love what you've done so far . . .

Looks great! Keep going! Where else where your scraps take you?
