Its been ages since I joined in with Nicky and Leanne's linky party which celebrates scraps in all their glory.
This quilt came out of last summers Fat Quarterly Retreat. We were randomly assigned groups and made a quilt from fabric we had brought. Funnily enough I and another member of the team had brought almost the same fabrics. We chose a rail fence and managed to get a top completed in one evening after the afternoons classes but we were left with lots of scraps which I then brought home.
I used a log cabin in principal in that I sewed pieces in a round however because of some of the sizes of the scraps its not that obvious. Some were sewn together to form a centre and others to form the outer strips.
To complete I eventually decided on a figure eight quilt design as the top was too busy to do something clever with. That business means it is very forgiving to the quilting which is rather organic in nature.
