On the design wall today are my blocks from the 2 day class I took with Cheryl Arkison at Quilt Canada. I did not purchase any fabric at all for my classes - just took my batik scraps and sewed up the leftovers.
The 12" blocks are in the order they were made. The two wonky log cabins were first. Great block, easy to make, and eats up lots of scraps! I plan to make more of those for sure....maybe a whole quilt of them!
The second row on the left is a slab block. That might be my favorite one to make. It uses up a lot of tiny little pieces.
On the right is a criss-cross block. I don't love it, and might add another few criss-crosses to cut down on the pinkness.
Then the letter Q surrounding the heart... that block is going to have some major reconstruction to reduce the pinkness or maybe it's going to be the quilt label on the back!
The wonky curve blocks were easier to sew than I had thought they would be. The hardest part was deciding on a layout for the 9 blocks.
On the bottom left is another slab block. It was made primarily from fabric scraps that were left for me in the bathroom in the residence with a note that said "these are for you - I know you love scraps!" I called that block the "Bathroom Fabric Fairy Block".
On the bottom right is two 6" star blocks - one light star on darks, and one dark star on lights. They might become the centers for log cabin blocks.
So that's a lot of pieces used up from my scrap box! I am inspired to keep sewing more blocks and have lots of ideas for blocks that I didn't have time to sew in class. So fun!
