April Stash Bee Blocks

This month in the Stash Bee our Queen Bee is Rhonda who requested high contrast scrappy log cabin blocks. She plans to slice each block in half diagonally and then combine the halves with other halves to make even scrappier blocks. It'll be interesting to see how it all comes together!

I sorted all of my scrap bag into pieces that I thought were usable for centers and log rings and got to work! I found that I had to use yardage (or at least, larger scraps) for the outermost rings of the blocks, but I still made a sizable dent in my scrap bag! I made four blocks because they were so much fun!


All of my blocks are larger than she requested by an inch or so -- that way she can trim them down as she chooses.

This also most definitely counts as scrap progress for multi-colored fabrics for April in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! I was able to make a sizable dent in my bag full of small scraps and strings narrower than 2 inches wide and used quite a few multi colored fabrics in these blocks. Any scrap busting-progress is worth celebrating in my book.

  4. Those look like a lot of fun, and will be even more interesting with the plans your bee-mate has for them! It can be really enjoyable to sew those simple, relaxing types of blocks!

  8. Oh, now I'm curious as to what they will look like in the end. That sounds like a fun quilt. I might have to give that a try.

  11. Lovely blocks, and it's a great idea to make them on the big side so they can be trimmed to size. I love scrap quilts.
