Oh Scrap! - Offset Scrappy Log Cabin Blocks


I have an affinity for rainbow quilts, and when I saw a tutorial for a scrappy offset log cabin block on Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework done in rainbow colors, I loved it. I made one block, was hooked, then added three more the following week. Today I added four more colors to the mix.



I haven't yet decided on my design or whether to add another color, but I would like to end up with a nice-sized lap quilt. Cynthia made 36 blocks in 9 colors and added 6 blocks of background colors for a 54" by 63" quilt, shown here. She is a very prolific quilter, and she keeps me inspired!

  2. Your blocks look fantastic! These colors alone will make a very pretty quilt, but adding different shades of your core colors could look nice also.

  6. I love scrappy quilts. I can't wait to make a real one some day when my stash and scrap bins are well rounded. I love that style log cabin too. Especially in the layout that reads as circles. Can't wait to see what you settle on.

    1. Gayle, my scrap bins started off neat, clean, and sparse. For some reason they are now full and messy - I thought they were supposed to get smaller when you make scrappy quilts! :)

  7. Your blocks are looking great! I especially like the turquoise and pinks one on the top! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap! I love to hear I have inspired a quilter to play with their scraps.

  8. You just blow my mind with all that you do. I feel proud when I sew on a button.

    1. Lol Pattie! Sewing on a button is more than many can do, so you have a right to feel proud. ;)
