I May Have A Scrap Problem... More Long Time Gone Blocks!

Hi, all!

Are you having fun with your scraps this week?  I know I am!  Here's the latest blocks for my Long Time Gone quilt...

These log cabin blocks were fun and I worked them up in about an hour, pulling fabrics from the top of the string basket again.  

Today I also pulled some scraps to remake this block....

...because when I put it with the other blocks I've made, it seems dull and muddy.  I've pulled some pretty Kate Spain prints for the second go and I think it will be much better.  This one will find a home in another quilt!

And now, since I have strings on the brain these days, here's some great inspiration I've found in the last few weeks...

You can find the original info for all of these quilts by clicking on them on my Pinterest page, Oh Scrap!

What have you been doing with your scraps this week?  Feel free to link up below and share!!




  1. some great scrap ideas here and am now following your scraps on instagram have made over 100 scrappy blocks this month but they are assorted sizes as just randomly joined odd bits such fun

  3. Funny...I recognize that string block with the flying geese...the style and the rug look like they belong to Julie K Quilts of Texas. It's just missing her dog, Rosie in the picutre :-)
