Miss January (almost)!

In the Brit Bee, it is my turn as Miss January to set the block requirements for my 11 Brit Bee Buddies. 

It is quite a daunting task deciding on what to ask 11 other very talented ladies to make.  Choosing the fabrics alone was mind boggling! I stewed over it for a long time, and finally budget restraints helped me to make my final decision!

SCRAPS!

I love scraps, and I love making things from scraps! So I raided and rummaged and gathered up 11 colour coded bundles of scraps and posted them at the end of December to the 4 corners of the UK (well to England and Scotland anyway!).

And you might well be asking 'And what did she ask them all to make with those scraps?'

Just take a wee look at these pics & more on this board on my Pinterest and see if you can guess!





That's right - log cabin blocks.  I can't wait to see what the girls come up with!

Well it is January tomorrow (yikes!).  

I hope you have enjoyed the good times in 2011, won out on some of the tough times, and have grown in your knowledge, understanding and appreciation of life and all it has had to offer you this past year.

  12. I'm wanting a scrap busting project to showcase some favourite scraps and have been leaning towards a scrappy wonky log cabin and then sashing between the blocks. What I can't decide is whether to keep to a the same colours per block, eg. a blue block, a red blog, a green block etc or mix them up...
