Fabric is expensive, so I hate to throw any of it away. I've been saving scraps of fabric and cutting them into strips for a log cabin quilt. I need 64 squares to make it a good size. I'm not there yet, but last night I arranged the squares I do have on the floor to get an idea of what it'll look like.
I think it'll be a really cheerful quilt when it's done. Instead of the blocks being half light and half dark, I'm making mine half warm colors and half cool colors. It won't be as obvious a pattern as the light/dark blocks, but I think it'll look good when it's done.
The only problem is that it'll take a while to get enough scraps to make all of the blocks. I'm really eager to get this quilt top done!
