Next batch of blocks, next quilt
I started this batch of blocks on Saturday night. They are quarter log cabin blocks using strips whatever width they are in the scrap bag, some crooked ones, some straight ones. The black print corner block is 5" and the blocks are about 13" now. I'm shooting for 16-18" finished blocks. These are inspired by the blocks in the Gwen and Freddy book I showed last week.A lot of people commented on my scrap organization. Since I make so many quilts I create a lot of scraps. A lot of the strips in the blocks above are my clean up cut pieces explained here. A lot of my scraps are kept in separate categories, batiks, Kaffe prints, dotted fabrics, regular prints, etc. The dotted ones were kept separate because I cut them all for this quilt and just kept all of the clean up cuts together afterwards. That picture is before the border was added. For more of my organization madness check out this link for the Organization category on the label list (on the right side of my main page). For pictures of how a lot of my stash is stored click here and here. If you click on the word Stash on the label list it will take you to all posts (42 of them) where I mentioned my stash in the 2.5 years I have been blogging.
