Oh Scrap! : More Log Cabin Blocks

Due to my hay fever and the hot weather, I spent quite a bit of time in my sewing room this week.  Scraps of various colors were piled everywhere!



I mostly worked on sewing up more scrappy log cabin blocks.
I finished up a total of 20 green blocks to add to the blue blocks I completed previously.

They are made with 1.5" strips and measure 8.5".


Right now I have enough blocks for this layout.  I think I am going to go back to making blue blocks for the corners.  I don't know if this will be the final layout but at least it gives me an idea of how many blocks to make.  Then I can start playing around with them.


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

It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

Love the flannel from yesterday, adore the log cabins today. I just need to give up and make some log cabins myself, everyone else seems to be making them!

Your blocks look great. I've only ever made a few log cabin blocks. I feel your hay fever pain. I'm allergic to grass, trees, and pollen. But I love Reactine -- my saving grace. Feel better soon.
