Scraptastic Tuesday

I’ve got this week’s pair of log cabins done-

I’m not sure about that yellowish strip on the left block- I think now maybe it’s higher volume┬áthan I thought but we will give it a go. Some of the strips are a bit thin at the edges on the right block to make sure the block was big enough but I’m trying not to overthink it.

I’m starting a secondary sorting system (beyond separating white/low volume from the rest). Some of the strips are pretty short and only suitable for the first round, so those are being put into a little basket as I find them. They’re all less than 6″ long. Thing is, now I want to create another for strips over 12 1/2″ so I have the edge strips ready too but then I’m in danger of making it less spontaneous.

Make sure you link up your scrappy projects this week with Nicky or Leanne to be in with a chance of winning prizes.

    You can always join shorter strips to make them the length you need but that may be a scrappy step too far? Love log cabins and I’m sure this will be fab ! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday and for giving us a shout out!

    I’ve never made a log cabin quilt but I’m very tempted. I like your idea of pre-sorting scraps ­čÖé

    I had convinced myself that I had so much fabric I did not have to use my scraps. Hence I gave them to a friend and she did wonderful things with them. Those to small to sew she gave back to me and I made dog beds with them. But the urge continues and I started with 2 blocks watch out. I loved the scrap log cabin blocks.
