Scrap swap


This week I got the envelope from Bea for the Scrap swap organised by Melly. I am a lucky woman! Beautifully wrapt she had put a lot of different fabric strips together for me.


Sorting them by color and adding a few of my own scraps I decided to start playing a bit with the log cabins. I cut the strips down to 1" and the center 2" and started sewing without any foundation.
Here is some Courthouse Steps:


Then some Log cabins:







All the blocks layered:


This was fun. Maybe the Courthouse Steps will end up as a little tabletop or I'll put all of them together as a log cabin sampler?? Hmm
Thank you, Bea and hope you'll have fun playing with the scraps I sent you.

Your Welcome. I'm glad you liked everything. All of your blocks look really fabulous. I'm very fond of the ones with the red centers. I'm hoping to look through and organize the scraps from you this evening.

Love your blocks. What a great way to get a closer look at someone elses fabrics too. The best pictures in the world don't always show exactly what fabrics have been used in a quilt.

What delightful scraps!!! So lucky! The log cabin blocks look so beautiful and difficult to do with the small size. Thanks for the lovely eye candy!

Lucky you...all those beautiful scraps. Sadly, I lost the chance to participate in the swap, maybe next time. Thanks for visiting my blog. I loved your log cabin blocks! How did you manage to sew such skinny strips without a foundation. Very nice work. I would love to see what it turns out to be.
