It was time to choose background fabric and make some progress. I bought this fabric for Skill Builder BOM back in 2013. It's local cotton. It looks a bit like linen but it is a print. I managed to make 2 blocks which I turned into cushions last year. I also used it for my Triangle quilt.
But first I cut all the pink, red and orange leftovers into squares and strips. Plus there is a pile of larger pieces and some suitable for fussy cuts.
I started out with 4cm strips which were left from the Skill Builder BOM block. Than I took a little detour because I still had some remaining pieces from that block.
It'll make some fun scrappy pouch later on.
I can assure you I have no strips left. As the background fabric is also a leftover I had to think about cutting into it. I made up the blocks first. I ended up with 10 blocks (31cm squares). 4 of those are full color log cabins.
I plan to sew the rows first and than I'll add the larger triangles at the edges. We'll see how it goes.
I'll be linking up with Oh Scrap!, Scraptastic Tuesday, buttons on the sidebar.
