I was originally going to pass up the Scrappy Stash QAL, because my sewing to-do list is hundred tasks long. But as my pile of laundry got bigger and the reality of having to wash and fold clothes set in, I thought "Hmm, what's the harm in doing one block?"
One block turned into 12 and I am completely addicted. I was a little concerned about the individual blocks at first (wasn't sure if they looked OK), but once you start looking at them all together all the imperfections fade away! I spent this morning quilting them with the QAYG method (Tutorial over at Maureen Cracknell Handmade). I quilted straight lines 1/4" apart in white thread.
I am making 36 more, 6 of each remaining colors: red, yellow, orange, pink, grey and purple. Those are going to be a harder to do, since I don't have a ton of scraps in those colors. The only thing I don't like about these blocks is cleaning up all the scrap vomit after the fact. :D You've all seen how messy my sewing room gets!
Besides the scrappy log cabins, I have been working on my project for the Tula Pink Sew Along, the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month & absolutely nothing that actually needs to get done. But I'm having fun!

Lastly, I'd like to thank :
Diane at from blank pages - I won a $20 gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics at the Share Your 80's Photo Party. I ended up being responsible and buying $20 worth of white fabric. My husband was proud of me. I didn't tell him I added a charm pack to my order. :)
Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts - I won one of the scrap packs from Fabricworm, so excited!
I love lucky streaks!
