More scraps (can there ever be less?)

10 Feb

In the last month I finished my scrappy log cabin quilt:

#scrappylogcabinqal for Siblings Together

I then had a bit of a tidy up of my stash and discovered that for some reason had been storing large (smaller than a fat eighth) scraps in there! I transferred these to my scraps boxes which means that they are just as full as before I started the scrappy log cabin!

I was stitching the binding on the log cabin quit while having a stitchy morning with a friend, she’s not wasn’t a quilter but decided she wanted to make one.  So the following week I took a box of ready cut scraps and showed her how to make the block and started a few more of my own!

I must admit I am debating whether or not to donate these to her cause or continue making it myself!

I started another scrappy project last week when another friend wanted to learn paper piecing. After I’d gone through the basics and got her started on a Lone Starburst I pulled scraps and made my first outhouse:


She was a great student but I know I wasn’t concentrating properly as the door was supposed to be the same colour as the roof but I’m not unpicking. This is a great pattern for scraps, expect to see more!

    come to think of it… there were 21 outhouses in my old neighborhood… maybe I should join you in making scrappy outhouses!! An Alaska theme!

  3. What delightful scraps! Love the log cabins and especially the outhouse. The narrow roofline is super. Thanks for the eye candy and inspiration.
