Scrappy 2015 project: #scrappylogcabinQAL
So - recently I jumped on the Instagram bandwagon and low and behold I have joined my first quilt a long! It is a scrappy log cabin quilt a long! Finally I have a large project to try and clean up my scrap bin. I haven't done much since my sister dug around and made scrappy placemats. I have been wanting to join one for a while but have been a bit intimidated. I have been wanting to do a log cabin quilt for such a long time. Ever since seeing this one! I think though, for this project I want to make something similar to this one, using this tutorial.
There is something so wonderful about cutting into scraps - seeing remnants of other projects made for loved ones. A bit of my sister's quilt here... a bit of color from my baby's quilt... my dad's quilt here...so much love. So much memory. Am I the only one so sensitive to the emotional ties that textiles have?
I am going to be selfish with this project and keep it for myself. I want to make a throw size quilt for our living room so that when our family cuddles up, we can be surrounded by a lot of love and memories of family that we hold close even though proximally they are far away.
Happy Sewing Everybody
