It's no secret that I like to make small blocks and big quilts.
How about some 4 inch (finished) log cabin blocks for a 60 x 80 quilt.
Julie made a call for all Log Cabin Loonies to join with her to make some of these cuties. So I have.
You can see from her instructions that it takes 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5 inch pieces x 1 inch. Well, I just happen to have all those different scrap sizes sorted into bins EXCEPT for the 3 and 4 inch. So, for all the scrap sizes I do have I just picked some and cut an inch off the end of each. I cut enough pieces for 20 blocks. Then for the 1 x 3 and 1 x 4 inch pieces I cut a 1 inch piece off of something(s) from the scrap chunk bin and further cut those 3 and 4 inch pieces. Clear as mud? It works for me. And now I have 20 blocks and am ready for Julie's link up for Log Cabin Loonies.
And speaking of four inch (finished) blocks...I've made a few more for Gallimaufry which is inspired by a vintage (c. 1890) quilt. Can you tell I was working with orange scraps?
Now I have to leave unexpectedly for a few days. See you when I get back!
