A Block {or Two}

Once I made up my mind to start cutting, I actually found two blocks to work on.  Since I couldn't make up my mind, block A or block B, I had to start on both!  Why not, right?  I won't have to buy too much fabric for the background, either, so we are in a win-win situation.

This particular block is a take-off on the log cabin and will be made in four colors, all shown here.  Even the whites are actually whites and creams and even prints.  I may need a few fat quarters but everything was basically from stash, even teensy tiny little scraps.  I LOVE scraps.

Now these strips will be part of the sandwich block that Suz posted about and I loved right away!  I've been pulling pieces from boxes and stitching and trimming.  Did I mention I love scraps?  For these blocks I will probably audition some text prints or something similar to complete the look but bring the scraps together.

Yea!  I feel stoked, and I need to feel that way right now.

  1. Glad to hear you are excited and stoked about sewing again. Yay! I really love log cabin blocks, and I like how they can get movement when they are pieced with different widths on the 2 sides like you did in your block. Looks great!

  2. That sandwich block is so much fun. I can't wait to see your version and I think I might put that on my list of To Do's!

  3. Beautiful blocks Debbie -- thanks for sharing them at Pretty Bobbins. Love the offset Log Cabin layout.

  4. I love your fabric choice and like you I love scraps!

  5. So great to see you excited about your projects ... these are going to be fab!
