Making progress on the 1" hexies project
I just love working with these fabrics
A new project--5" log cabin blocks (1/2" logs) from scraps I purchased at The Buttonhole in McPherson, KS a few years ago. You could fill a zip lock gallon baggie with all you could squeeze in for $5. They had just dumped some scraps from the cutting of a Christmas kit so I scooped up all of them in addition to a few others. That meant the strips were already color coordinated. I'm finally doing something with them though I'm not sure of the layout. Here's one for now.
I love the non-traditional blue fabrics in the mix.
I still have strips left, so I'll keep making blocks until I run out.
What got me started on this? I spent a couple of days folding more of the fabric I received from my friend and re-organizing my stash. In the process I found that bag of scraps so of course I got side-tracked before finishing the job. But I did get 6 sections done. Five more sections on that wall to go and then a second wall........
We are under a blizzard warning here..not common in this part of the country. I'm more concerned about the possibility of ice which is supposed to hit tonight. I've had a big pot of bean and ham soup simmering all day and just ready to put some squash bread in the oven in a few minutes. Crossing my fingers we keep electricity.
