|4" log cabin blocks|
I sewed 4 log cabin blocks using up yellow scraps. This project was started from Julie's Log Cabin Loonies quilt along last year. They are so fun to make (directions are here) and use up the smallest 1" scraps. Once I got the blocks sewn together I realized that one of the yellow fabrics really calls attention to itself. I waited a bit to see what I wanted to do about that - leave it or change it? I knew it bugged me enough that I had to take it out.
Here are all the blocks on the design wall. Do you notice in the yellow block that the offending scrap has been removed and replaced with a fabric that fits in much better. I just love these blocks and look forward to sewing more of them in the coming year.
Hop over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link up to see what yellow scraps are becoming. If you have scraps that need to be tamed, this is a great way to create unique projects a little bit at a time - join us!
