WIP Wednesday

I got up and sewed a few star blocks this morning.

Before I could do this, I had to sort all the pieces I cut.

I did most of this while watching TV withDaughter #3 the other night. I have a bit more sorting to do.

Some of you suggested that I piece my scraps together to get the last square of each fabric that I needed. This is a great time honored tradition in quilting and I haves done this myself on more than one occasion. However, my scraps were even too small for that. They went into this bin.

To create more of these:

My log cabins finish at 4 inches and each log is one half inch wide. This bin is getting full so it looks like it is time to get back to this project.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
