A fun scrap challenge!

I signed up for the JC Handmade Spare a Square scrap challenge and made this fun little wall hanging! The idea is that we all sent in a square of fabric, they were cut up and we got back ten different scraps to make something (anything!) with. We could add anything we want, we just need to use all of the scraps.  Here’s what I did:

I’m forever obsessed with wonky log cabin blocks, so I indulged my obsession. All of the patterned fabrics are the scraps I was sent, and the solids I added. It was fun to to stretch myself a bit and use colors I’d normally not use…

It’s small. It measures 9″ X 31″ and it’s now hanging in my sewing room!
