Earlier this summer I shared my Scrappy Log Cabin blocks–they were a lot of fun to make, and after mailing off my 36 blocks I’ve been trying to patiently wait for my swap blocks to arrive. Friday morning a wonderful package arrived on my doorstep.
It was so much fun looking at each and every block. Every block has fabrics I oohed and aahed over, and I love every one! I was a little worried that with so many people involved in the swap that the colors would be too “off” to use in one quilt, but I was happily mistaken! I love the combinations that arrived!
So I now have 12 of my original blocks and 36 new ones…48 in all. The blocks measure 10 ¼″ square, so I’ll be able to have a 6 x 8 block layout for a pretty good size quilt!
Aren’t they lovely! I am just so happy with the mix of colors and fabrics!
Now I need to decide on a setting…I could set the whole quilt with all of the original center squares in the upper left corner…
Or I can have the original center squares in the four outer corners and make four block sections…
Or…I can turn the original center squares to the center and have this fun scrappy layout!
Or…I can set the blocks on point or even start thinking of some options with sashing for an even bigger quilt!
I know I’ll be making a decision soon because I want this quilt finished yesterday. I even have the perfect backing fabric thanks to a good friend!
How would you set these blocks? Ideas appreciated! Thanks so much for stopping by!
