Oh Scrap! : Tiny Bites

 Even though my sewing time is limited now (new puppy), I am still able to find a few minutes here and there as he sleeps.  So, I am trying to focus that time on one specific project.

This week it was on this scrappy three-quarter log quilt I started months ago.  All I need to do now is make the half blocks that go on the edge and play with block placement a bit.

I decided to go with this up/down layout.  I think once the blocks are sewn together the effect is going to be awesome.  I hope to finish the top next week.


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!

Hope your new little buddy is settling in and starting to figure out life at your house! Your blocks are making a beautiful design - they look like a wall at an art gallery to me. It's those fancy "frames!" Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

I really like the combination of fabrics and colors in those blocks. Also looks like a good way to use some big prints. And, like Diann said..."looks like a wall at an art gallery".

I agree with Diann and Cathy, these blocks look like little paintings with those gorgeous frames. How beautiful they all look together. Oh, this puppy stage passes quickly, sometimes thankfully, LOL. Enjoy!

Magnificent color palette, all from scraps? Please tell us more about how you select scrappy colors and fabrics to use together. This palette is so inspiring!

Michelle said...

What an amazing design! And your palette is so pretty and warm. Congrats on the new puppy!

Sylvia@Treadlestitches said...

Wow, great colors and they work together so well with your design!

The up / down placement is going to give the quilt a lot of movement, which feels appropriate for this point in your life when I'm assuming there is a lot of walking and puppy energy happening in your home. :)

Can you tell me what size center square you started with on your three quarter log cabin blocks? I love the way these look together. Thanks.

Stunning - the up/down layout is so different and really sets off the blocks.

Hi Cynthia, I'm looking forward to seeing your finish - those fabrics are a lot of fun! Good luck with the puppy...that's a lot of work!

Jasmine said...

Such a fun layout for your blocks. It will really provide great movement. Enjoy your puppy play time!

Great colours in these blocks. It will be a really cheery finish!
