2015 RSC August Black and Gray Week 4, Scrappy Log Cabin Flimsy
This week I sashed 48 scrappy log cabin blocks with 2" strips of Kona White and 2" squares cut from scraps. The inner border is a 2" wide Kona White. The second border is a 2" wide yellow print. The outer border is a 4" wide turquoise dragonfly print. The flimsy is 68.5" x 86.5". It will shrink some during quilting and after go in the washer and dryer. I'll work on the backing next week.
The colorful strips and squares used to make the blocks for this quilt flimsy were cut from scraps during this year's rainbow scrap challenge. I'm slowly working through all my scraps this year, cutting them into usable units. The blocks in this flimsy went together fast since everything was already cut. I used a piece of black print or gray print in each log cabin block. I had hoped to do more with my black, gray and white scraps, but I ran out of time. Luckily, we have a fifth Saturday in August.
