Oh Scrap! - Offset Scrappy Log Cabin Blocks


These blocks are so much fun! I blogged here about finding the tutorial for them on the blog of Cynthia Brunz Designs. This woman produces the most amazing blocks and quilts from scraps, and what's even better is that she shares her methods!

I added these three blocks to the teal block from last week


Cynthia made 24 blocks in several color groups and featured several ways to lay out the blocks here. I love them laid out as wheels of color. I haven't decided if I want to add more color groups or stick with these. Cynthia also added some low volume wheels to her layout, and it looks wonderful.

I guess you know you're having fun when you wake up in the morning and can't wait to start working on a project - that's how I feel about this one! I was interrupted with celebrating hubby's birthday, but he was worth it.

  3. This is a great block. I have a bin of 2 and 1/2" strips that would be fun to use in this way. Thanks for the links over to Cynthia.

    Happy birthday to your husband!
