Since I took this picture, I have completed another red block, which makes 16 blocks total. I am still not loving that light blue block (bottom right corner in picture), but who knows..... I could always piece it into the backing.
Each of these large 16” blocks are comprised of four (8.5” before sewing together) smaller wonky log cabins. The negative space areas are strips cut from my ever-growing (instead of shrinking) collection of white and black fabrics. The finished quilt will be 5 blocks across and 5 up and down, or an 80x80” quilt. Unless I change it last minute to 5x6 blocks, 80x96”. I will test it on our queen bed when the flimsy is complete.
I am planning 2 more bright (not the dark) green blocks, a total of 5 reds (meaning two more to go there), one more each of yellow, pink and purple, and likely a couple oranges and/or another teal or two. Since some of those color months are passed, I will work them in to my stitching schedule for August and September and perhaps October. I would like to have this (professionally) quilted before the waiting times get too long for the Holidays. I can bind it easily in a day or two in time for an end-of-the year finish.
My stash scrap has actually grown, not decreased this year. That is because I`m doing so much more
That is it for me - and thanks for visiting! Why not join us in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge?!?
