This month my scrappy projects have been mini log cabins and bee blocks.
Julie’s request for her month in the Siblings Together bee was this:
I have no idea if the block has a name, it’s 20.5″ unfinished. Julie asked for gender neutral fabrics and mentioned that if we fancied making a 2nd block she’d be happy to receive it in any colours. With blocks as big as these one from each member is enough to make a quilt, so more blocks mean more quilts. So I raided my scrap bins for more feminine colours and made this:
This week with the children back at school I’ve started to tackle the scrappy log cabins again; this is a 9″ block made from 4 blocks that are 4.75″:
I now have 21 blocks made in this way:
I have 77 additional 9″ log cabins blocks and I plan to make 14 more so that I can make 2 quilts of 56 blocks each. I hesitate to say that my scraps bins are a little less full but it might be true!
