Crazy Scraps

Ok, this is small and a bit crazy. 
It measures 16" tall and just under 19" wide. 
I had been working on log cabin blocks and needed real small scraps. So, I saved bits less then 1" squares in a tin, nicknamed the Little Tin of Horrors. I got the log cabin blocks done and thought I might light the tin of scraps on fire. But then I though maybe I could sew some together.
 Oh yes very crazy. Well, I kept sewing. 
Now I have a piece of fabric. Not sure what I will finish it into. Maybe a bag. 
So no more Little Tin of Horrors. 
And no more saving tiny bits there has to be a limit.
 I will keep 2" squares or any log over 1 1/2". 

Here is some of the log cabin blocks.
 Very small bits used to make the blocks.

Scrappy Saturday

Back in January 2018, I started the blue spiral log cabin blocks. It was part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2018 light blue for Jan. I kept going and got the quilt top done. Later this spring, a friend asked if I had any baby quilts for sale. She found out the baby is a boy so this quilt was going to be perfect. I got the quilt done last month and finished and delivered the quilt. 

Here is the quilting with more Spirals. 
After the baby is born I am going to add a label. 
So happy to hear that there will be a new baby just down the road in a few weeks.

I got a little more Red done from July's colour. These are 6 1/2" crumbs or poverty piecing. 

I worked with some Red and Pink scraps for these hearts. 
I have 7 more blocks almost done.
 So a total of 14. 
I will mail these off for a group hug quilt. 

Aug is the scrap challenge colour is Orange. 
I have started Bow Ties. 
I am using an orange with white dot fabric. 
How cute are they? 
I will not use any other orange but all the other colours, like these Red ones. 

 I worked hard on my Orange scraps. I cut and cut and ironed out funky bits. 
I have tons of triangle in there. I have 3" square, 2 1/2" sq, 2 "sq and then I needed 2 by 3 1/2" units for some flying geese. Now I can start putting some blocks together. I am sure  will need another few weeks before I can complete all this orange. 

I have added this post to Soscrappy and Confessions of a fabric addict.
