This week I got started on some log cabin spirals. I had to use both light and dark but I am making a big dent in the light fabrics. I still have so many dark blues. I was not sure how many blocks to do. 16 started so far. Not sure I will do all colours in this block. Maybe just a two colour quilt? not sure where it is going yet. It is just nice to sit and sew strips. I am using 1 1/2" strips.
Look at how many different blues end up in the block so far.
I have added this post to Soscrappy who hosts the Rainbow Scrap Challenge each Saturday.
This is the block that inspired me. I got this block in the my pizza box exchange. One of my old school friends has joined the guild and is quilting too now. She made this block for me. And I just love the block.
Look at these scraps. I was told about a local estate sale of fabric. I meet the gentlemen selling his wife's fabric. So sad to go and see fabric loved but not used. Well I bought some fabric and asked to take the scrap box he had. In the scrap box was a careful stack of shot cotton, all labeled with the name of the colour. Oh what a little gem of fabric. Each one has the name I had no idea there were so many shot cottons solids.
I bought yardage, mostly half yards some smaller. I think these would make some great kids quilts. I might also use some in my Vintage Farm girl quilt.
Shot cotton yardage I bought. The fabric was not washed and I know I will be washing those reds. They are bleeders for sure. All of the Shot cotton yardage has labels also. She had a very tidy stash.
I am out at another dog trial today. My friend has asked me to come help her with her 3 dogs and would like me to run one of them. My Gemma still has a broken nail, maybe by the end of February we can play.
