Scrappy Saturday

January is red month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so I am playing in the red scraps this month. 
Red Log Cabin Loonie block
Last year Julie hosted a log cabin loonie quilt along and I enjoyed making those blocks so much that I am continuing this project into 2019. You can get the cutting instructions at Julie's blog if you want to try one. The log cabin blocks are make with 1" strips and measure 4.5". When you put 4 blocks together, you get this great block which is 8.5".
The red block joins 4 other finished blocks from last year, but it is awkward to take a good photo of 5 blocks, so here are 4 of them. There is also an orange block just out of view.

What are you sewing with your red scraps this week? Hop over to the weekly link up to see what other RSC'ers  are up to.

  4. I like these blocks - is this quilt along still going on? Sometimes after I see you posting blocks for awhile I think I should have started too :)

  9. I'm impressed that you have so many light fabrics with red in them. My reds all look pretty much the same which makes for boring RSC blocks. I've started too many other projects, but these little log cabins will go on my later list.

  10. Those are so pretty! I like the way you used low volume fabrics with a bit of red in them for the light sides of your blocks.

  12. I finished my Looney Log quilt top but am considering making another AFTER I get it quilted. A Rainbow Cabin looks like a wonderful idea.
