Mini log cabin blocks

Phew! Back home again, and back to a little sewing. I found I had a pile of scraps on my craft table (I mean, our dining room table!) so I decided to make up a few mini log cabin improv blocks. I had fun making small log cabin blocks that I used in the blocks I made for Alissa, and I thought that perhaps I’d make up a bunch and use them for a quilt. I only have 5 done so far, so there will be many more to make before I have enough for a quilt (they’re only 4″ square), but it’s fun to use up scraps and make up these really cute little blocks!

Looks like I need to make some with yellow and blue – most of my scraps seem to be pink and green…

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that has taken over the dining room table :) It’s not like we use it regularly anyway.
