scrappy box progress

 Hello everyone,

I decided to go with a traditional block for using up strips...the log cabin. To finish off the scrappy boxes I've been working on.


A good handful of my strips that I just could NOT throw away, were only 1"x5". A 1" strip cut off my charm pack of Northcote Range.


So I have trimmed all the scraps I am using down to 1" in width. These blocks measure 5".
 


I like the various ways you can put log cabins together, to make different designs.


I have about 34 boxes to put strips on. These are only a few of them. Lots of work to do still.

Maybe next week I'll have a bit more to show you.....

Have a great day!

Linking up with Jenna again.

  2. The first couple weeks I threw out way too much. I have realized that I can make neat things out of just the littlest amount of edges. If its a least a inch wide I save it now.

  3. They are so pretty. I've only used pieces that narrow on my spider web blocks where seam allowance accuracy doesn't matter. You are doing a great job.

  5. That is sew cute! I am in the middle of organizing my stash. I have a box of small pieces to press, and didn't know just how small was too small to keep. Guess I can now start thinking "outside the box".

  8. Nice scrap collection - and turning them into log cabins is really a good idea. Hope you have an easier time than I did deciding which way to put them together in the end.
