Scraptastic Tuesday - February Link is Open!

It's the second Tuesday of February so the Scraptastic Tuesday monthly link is open.

More scrappy log cabins

I decided that I needed to continue with my scrap strips and make more regular sized log cabins, at about 15" square. I might just carry on until the box of scrappy strips is empty.

More scrappy log cabins

I only managed 2 tonight. I did clean my sewing machine too, but my long walk earlier means I am sleepy now. I am still Quilt Con training and will have to figure out how to go for a long walk or two shorter ones tomorrow too.

Only my scraps

In case you missed it, there are my scrappy log cabins from the weekend - now a 60" quilt top. I need to make these a back so I can get them quilted soon.

Now its time for you to share your scrappy projects, plans and ideas.

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors for providing the following prizes which will be awarded randomly among those of you who link up.

      Please join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow and I by linking up a blog post or flickr or instagram photo sharing a scrappy project, in progress or finished, or your thoughts on dealing with your scrap mountain:
      • You don't have to have joined us before, everyone is welcome.
      • One link per person, and it will be your entry into the random draw for the prizes. It is the same link up here and at Nicky's blog - Mrs. Sew and Sow - so you only need to link up on one of our blogs.
      • You can link up from your blog, instagram or flickr, but you have to link up to be entered in the prize draw.
      • Please visit at least a few of the links, they are very inspiring, and leave comments too as everyone loves to connect. 
      • Use the Scraptastic Tuesday button and invite your friends to join us too. Please share our button, or a link or the hashtag #scraptastictuesday in your linked post or photo.
      • The link is open until next Monday night at 10:00 pm MST. We will announce the winners next Tuesday. 
      • If you have trouble linking up, let me or Nicky know and we will get you sorted.

      These are just gorgeous scrappy log cabins. Look forward to seeing the bottom quilt quilted!

      Love your scrappy log cabin blocks. That should make a dent in your scrap box unless it's like my bottomless box where it will never be empty.

      The log cabins are superb! I made 2 log cabin quilts last year for Siblings Together just from my stash boxes (and they are still pretty full!) it was so satisfying.

      Your log blocks are beautiful.

      Debbie said...

      Log cabins are always a win! I really need to get back to my scrap bin!

      Beautiful scrappy log cabin blocks! Have fun at QuiltCon!

      Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

      I am curious where you are headed with the new scrappy log cabin blocks. Emptying out the scrap bin sounds like a big goal!

      My husband and I try to go on a 3 mile walk together every evening, so that on top of the cardio at my gym I do will hopefully work well for me at QuiltCon. I think my husband is going to miss out on the exercise next week, though!

      Scraps are the best! I used a bunch of red and white scraps to make both the St. Valentine's Day runner *and* a wall hanging. Having a chance to use up those little pieces felt great!

      Love the log cabin blocks--such a fun way to use up scraps!

      Hi Leann! I love your log cabin blocks! They are so beautiful when used similar colours. Yellow is my new favourite! x Teje

      Preeti said...

      Your scrappy log cabins are so bright and happy :-) At 30" each, they sure will make a quick and a gorgeous quilt.

      I love these large log cabin blocks.

      Rosa said...

      Your blocks are just beautiful and love them all and once again thanks for the link party hope to join next month.

      I love that yellow block - just the thing to cheer up a dreary day!
