sewing for sanity


After drooling countless times over Kirsty's log cabin blocks, I decided to join up with the scrappy log cabin challenge on flickr. Timely, as my scrap buckets are starting to overflow.

The last two posts are so impressive to me. Last year, when I thought I was going to buckle down and learn to use my hand-me-down sewing machine, I tried to make a log cabin pillow. Who knew this stuff wasn't as easy as it might seem? Your work is flawless!

Yummy colours!! I love the orange.

Fun colors. Makes me want to make a non-bright quilt.

I've been eyeing the log cabin blocks at Melly and me too... and my huge scraps bucket... should I bite the bullet and do it?

Found a pattern here http://www.stonecottagequilts.com/newsletter.html that I think you might like... I like it anyway.

wow, your scraps all match! Mine would be a true fruit salad if I had to do this.
I love them!

They turned out really pretty.

Simply gorgeous!! I would tell you that you're crazy for working on this right now, but I completely understand this is the only way NOT to go crazy! So, quilt away!! Plus, you better empty out that scrap bucket - mine is filling up begging to be sent to you!

lovely darling. there is something to be said for sewing for sanity. i contend that it is far cheaper than therapy!! fabric therapy...i can see a new niche in the pshycology community!

I like how the Freshcut prints mix with the others, especially the orange. (My stuff is too varied for that kind of project...)

Linda said...

Very pretty! I always love the colors you choose. I may have to have you eye up my scraps one of these days and tell me what to put together because to me, non of mine work together that well. Maybe I should just send them all to you! I might need a u-haul, though. ;)
There is something to be said for sewing for sanity. Something about the creating order from chaos that is very theraputic.

Isn't it amazing what beauty awaits in the scraps we keep? Your log cabin blocks are charming. I love the fresh, cheerfulness of the colours. Have fun!
