Green Scraps

After spending time organising my scrap tub last month, I was quite excited to start working with my green scraps as I knew they were all there in one place and easy to access.

I thought I'd start with making some quarter log cabin blocks. 

Looking at the pile of greens I have, I knew I wouldn't have any problem making a whole lot of these scrappy happy blocks. I decided to use mainly lime or leafy greens and left the more teal/turquoise pieces of fabric, for later in the year (incase they make an appearance).


I ended up with 17 of them all pressed and trimmed - only 16 blocks appear in this picture because it looked more balanced for IG. 

I don't normally like green all that much, but I really love the look of these blocks. Can you imagine a whole scrappy green quilt like this on a bed to snuggle under? How lovely!!

    1. They do look great all trimmed and lined up and I look forward to seeing what you make with your 1/4 log cabin blocks. Not sure what I'll do with mine yet - I'm making these for the RSC and seem to have more greens that any of the other colours so far. I might need to go back at make some more yellows and pinks.

    1. Thanks Karen. They look nice when they're all pressed and trimmed. The hexies are my evening (in front of the telly) project.

  5. I can imagine those greens as part of a lovely Spring quilt, with more pink and yellow based blocks, all scattered about like a field of spring flowers. Very pretty and fresh!

  8. LOVE these blocks in GREEN!! I'm working on a set made from yellow scraps (pulled last month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.) I'm wishing that I had waited and made my blocks in green, too.

  10. I’ve made log cabin blocks, but not quarter cabins! These are cute. How big are your blocks unfinished?

    1. These are 6” after I trim them nice and neatly.
      I chose 6” because it’s the width of my ruler and so it’s easy to measure when I’m putting them together :)

  13. I am also not a huge green fan but we need all of the colors of the rainbow in our quilts. And you keep inspiring me to finish cleaning up the sewing room so I can sort scraps. I am in the middle of going through all of my fabrics after pulling them all out of the bins. I have destashed some by giving them to a friend and she will be giving me some of her scraps from her current project.
