Lately, I have been extra obsessed with sewing from my strip scraps. I have four strip WIPs right now.
There's the scrappy quarter log cabin (I assembled the top this past weekend in Wisconsin! Photographic proof soon!). I made 56 10.5 inch blocks using all kinds of color.
Then there's the June quilt, from Amanda Jean's new book, No Scrap Left Behind. I have the top partially assembled, and I hope to finish it pretty soon. For this one, I cut a big pile of strips into the size she called for, which sped up the sewing process.
I also started a more selective log cabin project a few weeks ago. I'm using reds, neutrals, browns and yellows, and I've got ten blocks finished.
This color palette inspired me to make a pillow for Chase recently (I'll share that soon!), and then led to these blocks.
Finally, there are my scrappy pineapple blocks. I have the blocks finished, so I just need to stitch them together for a finished top!
With all of these projects, I still have the itch to work with my strips (and they never seem to deplete), so I am sure I will start a few more projects with them before the year is out.
And that brings me great comfort.
