To freshen up the table at my house, I am making new placemats. I cut the strips 1.25", so they finish at .75 inches. The log cabin blocks are 12.5 inches with 3 inch neutral strips on each side.
Aqua, green, yellow, orange, purple, blue, red, black. That's a lot of scraps, but just as I finished these, I found a little bag of scraps from another project to add to the scrap bags.
I have Ikea wire drawers for my stash, and put scraps of each color in a gallon zip lock bag in the back of the drawer for that color fabrics. It's not perfect, as everything comes out of the scrap bags a wrinkly mess, but it works until I get something else figured out.
It's fun walking down memory lane looking at these log cabins . . . scraps from lots and lots of projects.
I'm not sure how I'll quilt these, maybe just the zig-zag curved stitch that my machine can do. Easy and effective.
When you come for dinner, be sure to request your favorite color! My granddaughters have already spoken for the green and aqua. . .
I finished my taxes today, so I feel free to take time to do a blog post. First things first, after all.
Red means stop, and so I shall.
