I love this block and could hardly wait to show it to you. While blog hopping the other day I saw this block…I think it might have been on Pinterest or something like that when I did a search for a log cabin paper pieced pattern. I was looking for the exact size log cabin paper pieced block so I wouldn’t have to figure things out for myself. After I found the above Scrap Attack Block, I completely forgot about the log cabin and started making this one. I love the bright colors and the unique design. I’ll bring it to the Happy Scrappers Quilting Bee at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on the second Saturday of the month for Show-N-Tell. Hopefully, I’ll have another block done by then.
Then again, maybe I won’t make another one. I got to thinking that I could put this block with this other block that I blogged about here. I love making new blocks and stretching my capabilities. I thought, maybe each time I find a new block I can add it to the others and after a while I’ll have a whole new quilt. What do you think…will these two blocks go in the same quilt?
Anyway, I got this Scrap Attach Block at From Blank Pages. In that post there is a link to her Craftsy site where you can get the pattern for free. Prior to Buffie making a paper piecing addict of me, I didn't paper
piece because I didn't like tearing the paper away from the finished
block. Buffie showed me how easy it really is. I would just caution you to think about the kind of paper you use before you start printing. I have a whole box full of letterhead from work that they were going to toss because of a printing error. I brought it home and use the backs for printing or drawing. Anyway, the first time I printed the pattern onto that bond paper. Big mistake. It is too difficult to tear off the pieces of paper. After that I use copy paper, which tears away easily. Enjoy! Until next time, ♥ Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive! Caroll
