Lazy Sunday Part 2

And here's my second scrappy log cabin block. I used only scraps that had red or pink in them and it gives it a completely different look. I'll probably rotate making the complete random ones and the planned ones. I'm hoping to make these into pincushions (each finished square is about 6 inches square)

And Mary Ann!!! Spoiler alert (read no further if you want to be surprised:))

I finally finished her fabric challenge projects and these really were a challenge. I had NO idea what I wanted to do with this fabric - it's a white stretchy type fabric with really faded flowers on it. I added the stripes of the floral fabric and ended up making a wall hanging organizer (each white trimmed pocket is divided into three sections), a little pillow and a pouch. I really like how the organizer turned out. I used bias tape to edge it all to add a little color to it. So Mary Ann, I hope to get this in the mail to you this week:)

I love the idea of using those squares as pin cushions! I don't think I've seen those before.

I also think you did a great job with the fabric challenge (what a neat idea, by the way). I'm sure Mary Ann will love it.
