Oh Scrap! : RSC QTR Log Blocks

This last week I focused on completing my quarter log cabin blocks for one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts.



I finished up three blocks from my darker blue scraps.  I love that I can use whatever width of string I have to make these blocks.  It sure cuts down the cutting time!



 I put all of my completed blocks up on my dark gray design wall.  It sure makes those colors pop!
(This wall sits behind my longarm so usually I only put my long-term projects up here.  Plus I can gaze at them while I am quilting.

I have no idea how I will eventually lay these out.  I will need to make quite a few more colors before I start getting inspiration.


Now it is your turn to share what scrappy projects you are working on!



*********************************************************

I think you should set them on point like you have it now! I love gazing at these. They are seriously going on my 'to do list' for when I don't know, haha.

I like the black and white 9 patches as your "center" for those blocks. Very different. Those log cabins do really pop on that dark background. Happy stitching this week.

They are now, and will be wonderful all together with other colors! Love those little blocks ;)

What cute blocks! That’s going to be a pretty quilt!

I like the blocks on point too. You can use strips of different widths? What a fun pattern.

I absolutely LOVE how these blocks are coming together!!

Cathy said...

I really like the nine patch centers and I like them set on point. I may have to try some of these.

Jasmine said...

I like how the colors pop on the dark background too. What fun blocks. I always like scrap projects that don’t require a lot of cutting.

Your blocks are such a great way to use a variety of strings, they look terrific! Thanks for sharing!

Ann said...

Such exciting blocks. I love the many, rich colors and the simple nine-patch centers.

Bonnie said...

Those blocks keep looking better and better. I like them on the dark grey. Hum maybe an idea for the setting blocks if you keep them on point.

This is going to be a beautiful quilt! Your blocks look fantastic!

Rebecca Grace said...

I agree with Vicki. The blocks look really cool the way you have laid them out in this photo. I love the log cabin strips with the little 9 patch corners. Such common ideas separately, but together they create something special and brand new!

Your blocks are wonderful. I enjoy seeing the new colour combos every month.

I have loved watching you make these blocks. Using the black and white nine-patches makes them so interesting. They look good on point, but whatever you do with them will look great.
