Little Bits Obsessed

Yes, I have to admit that I can become obsessed with little bits of "left-over fabrics" and that is exactly what happened when I trimmed my solid color log cabin blocks

into tilting freedom blocks. 

Follow the link to see further information on this: trimming log cabin blocks
If you love the results, you can find instructions and patterns for making fun-loving quilts in my book "Log Cabin Quilts with Attitude".

The narrow wedges of fabric trimmed off could, of course, be thrown away. That is what any logical person would do. But what if...................

I sewed these narrow bits together. What could pop up as a result?

These stitched bits seemed to fall in love with a background fabric that I was enhancing with fabric markers.

A bit was added here.

And a bit was added there.


Oh, this is so much fun. I just hope you are enjoying your day as much.

No matter which way you view it, may you find rainbows and roses in your day!


  1. I am thrilled to see I am not the only one who can't throw away good bits of fabric! Of course, mine are in a bag. :) Love what you did with these leftover strips!

  2. Hi, Sharon. Sometimes it's the little bits of fabric that are the most interesting! Loved the movement you created with your tiny piecing. The solid fabrics are so pleasing to work with.
    best, nadia

  3. Thank you for your comments. It was fun working small and I have more scraps left so the fun continues.
