I finished up 42 blocks for this log cabin quilt top over the weekend and got the top together yesterday. It was hard to come up with a layout I liked but I finally decided on this one.

Yesterday, I also got started on the first neutral and print log cabin blocks for the next top. I plan to go until I finish up my 1 1/2" strips. Once those strips are gone I need to work on my crazy quilt blocks so that pile gets whacked back again.

I have joined a flickr group for stash busting so this morning I took pictures of most of my scraps (well contained in bins for the most part) to show. This is inspiring me to haul those bins down and get it all sorted out one of these days so I have a bin of flannel, one of polar fleece, one of 'good' quilt fabric, one of LWR quilt fabric, etc. Then I will be able to just pull down one bin at a time to work with and empty. Maybe I can get Katie to help me over Thanksgiving if I offer movies and special beverages while we work?!?!?!

I will think about the chex mix if it gets the fabric sorted!

Great quilt. I hope to never use up all my scraps, but to die with a thimble on my hand.

I am sure I will never use up all my scraps but they are taking over my space!
