After making bee blocks at the beginning of the week I was on a log cabin rush and spontaneously decided to make some quilt as you go blocks.

I usually spend a bit of time picking fabrics and thinking about how they go together but I did something I've never done before... when I'm working on a project I put my scraps to the side and then sort them later (or when I can be bothered), well I just grabbed those scraps and turned them into this quilt as you go basket!


I've been needing a thread catcher next to my machine after the beautiful pottery bowl I was using fell off and smashed. Sad. This one can't get hurt though and I used this tutorial for the overall measurements to make it and it's the perfect size!


I used a scrap of binding I had left over from a quilt and it makes me smile seeing those pretty little flowers.



Hope you're having a nice start to the weekend and I will be back tomorrow with a giveaway so make sure you stop by!
