Oh Scrap! : More Log Cabin Blocks

Even though this month is supposed to be all about pink scraps, I decided to get out my blue scrap bins and make a few more log cabin blocks.

I pulled some navy, teal and medium blue shades for my next three circles.

I am trying to focus on using a lot of my print fabrics so each block has a lot of interest.

Here are all the blocks I have finished so far.  The purple circles is 22" wide, the blue ones will finish at 15" I think and the pink ones will make 11" circles.  Now I need to empty one of my design walls so I can lay these out and start making a bunch of filler blocks.  The rest of the blocks are all small in size so the cutting is going to take a LONG time.  But I am using a number of the small strings filling up my scrap bins so I am pleased to start seeing those get used.

Time for you so share your scrappy projects!


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

  1. I love that circular log cabin block! Yours are looking great, Cynthia!

  2. I love the log cabin in those shapes - so different than your ordinary square log cabin pattern

  3. I find it so interesting that rectangles can get together and look like curves.

  4. Yeah, what Cathy said!
    I've been fascinated with this block for a long time - yours are especially appealing! I'm looking forward to your finish on this one!

  5. Those are such great blocks! I enjoy seeing how you're using all those different prints together and they work. Having different sizes of the blocks will make for a really interesting quilt design! Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

  6. You do know you are making me drool again don't you!! One of these days I will make these-notice I didn't say which year, LOL.

  7. I'm looking forward to seeing those blocks up on your design wall, Cynthia!

  9. I really need to make these one day! Do you have a go to pattern? I love the pretty little pink ones...but they are all beautiful and will be a gorgeous quilt in the end!

  10. Like most of the commentators, I'm looking forward to see it on your design wall as I have no idea what you will do next. I love anticipation! ;^)

  11. Those RSC log cabins are looking great. It's a wonderful block for using up little strips and strings that you couldn't bear to part with!

  12. Your log cabin blocks are looking terrific. Do they take a long time to actually sew or is the time spent prepping the strips? Just curious.

  13. Your blocks are looking fabulous!

  14. Loving these Log Cabin blocks of yours, looking forward to seeing some of them up on the design wall.
