Oh Scrap! : A Few Blues

I did discover a current project that needed some blue scraps this month.
So I guess I did need to get my blue bin out after all.

I needed some blue log cabin blocks that finish at 5.5" for one of my scrap quilts.

I also finished up two more pink blocks.  These are made using 1" and 1.5" strips.

I have started to put them up on one of my design wall so I can look at color placement a bit.  I am not sure if I will keep the squiggle effect or make them into circle shapes - I need a few more blocks up on the wall to make that decision.

Next I think I will get out some green scraps.  Then I will be able to sew together the upper right quadrant of the quilt.  I am procrastinating making the smallest sized blocks.  For those I need 1/2" and 3/4" strips - That is tiny for me but I know they will be adorable little blocks!

Happy Scrappy Sunday!

(My fellow bloggers - is it my imagination or is the blogger creation page constantly changing lately?  I think I have something figured out and the next time I go to do something, I have to search for the buttons again!  I guess it does keep it interesting!

Yes on the Blogger changes! Every time I go to write a post, something looks different. So far, I've been able find all the things I need for a post, though. Maybe one of these days they'll be done messing with us! I can tell those blocks are going to make a fun design! Looking forward to seeing what you decide with them.

Not your imagination. So far I think the changes have improved things, especially adding photos and being able to add a caption. However, some of the icons still make no sense. I just wish we'd get a few clues that changes have been made instead of having to discover on our own.

Yeah, same here with Blogger. I hope they settle soon.
I'm looking forward to your itty log cabins! You're having an awful lot of fun with those blocks - the squiggles are a giggle!

The log cabins are looking lovely. I really like the wiggly setting for them.

JanineMarie said...

Log cabins are so neat--I like your circular ones! Yes, Blogger keeps changing before our eyes. Perhaps they are listening to feedback? I think they are trying to make it easier to know what the icons mean instead of having us guess. As long as we can post, I guess it's okay.

Ugh! Totally NOT you imagination where Blogger is concerned. It's driving me CRAZY!!! Just when I was getting used to the original changes, they started changing things AGAIN. :o((

I love the squiggly lay out

Pamela Arbour said...

Love your blocks. I can see that you are going to find a creative way to piece your blocks.

Susan said...

I like the squiggles - I vote to keep them!

Such tiny, tiny Log Cabin blocks and don't they look lovely when they form the curvy S shape.

Hi Cynthia, I like your blue and pink log cabin blocks. They look so different when they are paired with a light colour! And yes, blogger was changed again. I can't find the button for the html anymore. It's rather aggravating! Thanks for hosting the link up!
