I mentioned on Wednesday how I can
I love, love, love log cabin quilts … they’re so simple, yet they can be set in so many different ways for so many unique quilts … they’re so traditional, yet with the right setting and right fabrics, they can be very modern. I’m not done making log cabin quilts, either as I’ve got about half the blocks together for a log cabin quilt for DH, and I’ve got a quilt with this setting on my bucket list:Source: Google search
Or maybe this one:Source: www.etsy.com
Or maybe both?
Speaking of the one I’m making for T#1, I couldn’t wait to see how the spiral was going to look, so I laid out the first ten blocks on my design floor.Pay no attention to the loose threads on my blocks … they’ll get all tidied up when it comes time to piece the top together. And remember, the colors aren't as bright and vivid as they're appearing in my photos.
Today I hope to finish up the next 15 blocks … I’m chain piecing them, which means it takes longer to get to finished blocks, but when I do, I have enough to see it take some shape. I’ll be making a total of 72 blocks … originally I was going to make 80, but T#1 has asked for borders. I would have chosen no borders, but since this will be his quilt, I’ll honor his request.
I hope that whatever you have planned today includes a little something that brings you joy. Have a fabulous Friday!
