    Scrappy Paper Pieced Block

    I've been working on a new paper piecing class for the summer, and I found this block on Quilter's Cache (just love that site!). I thought this would be a fun one for quilters who need a way to use up some scraps. It's Marcia Hohn's Logs in Logs Scrap Block (6").

    Wow as if my gotta do list isn't big enough, you have to go and post a block that will go to the top of my list. I love it. Such a neat way to do a log cabin with flare. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful block, love it! For some reason, "paper piecing" intimidates me!

    Her pattern showed 20 blocks to make a small quilt, but I don't think I'll have the time to go that size...probably will do 9 blocks and make a small wall hanging. Of course, I have enough scraps to probably do a full size quilt, but that will be for another project!

    That's a lot of pieces. Around 60 per block. Very impressive. Please show us when you're done.

    Very nice. I really like the block but Just how big is the block? It would take me a very very very long time to use up my scraps on this one. Without a size reference it looks like a small block and there is a huge amount of time piecing it for a very little reward. I would pass on it if the reference is to use up scraps, IMHO.

    I would enjoy making this pattern, it is wonderful and would not even consider that it would use up any of my scraps.

    just remember the objective you stated for the class.

    So my question is, How big is the block?
    peace

    EDIT: So sorry, somehow I missed the block size at the end of the post. It is very small, will work up beautifully. It just won't use up any scraps, again, IMHO.

    Couldn't you potentially make it larger so it would be helpful in using up scraps? Of course, larger would not require paper piecing. . . The dilemma continues

    Or could you still do it fairly large as an introductory exercise to get the "feel" of paper piecing? It's a really nice block!

    Wow! It's GREAT!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
