Log Cabin Quilt
Have you ever started a project that feels like a chore whenever you work on it? Log cabins I tell you! I found a forgotten stash of Nancy Halvorsen's pastal FQ's that I bought on sale when the range was being phased out.I was after a quick and simple quilt for a gift and wanted to use co-ordinating fabrics entirely from my stash. I cut all the FQ's into 1.5" strips and printed out 36 foundation blocks sized 7.5". Sewing 6 rows of 6 for the centre, I will then use the rest of the strips for a border and when completed it should be lap sized.As I am foundation piecing the blocks for accuracy, the sewing is repititious, Cate hands me strips and I sew them on, in no particular order, just none the same in any block. She got bored quickly and has escaped to do playdoh! I am just churning them out like a mini production line with no enthusiasm. Oh well, half way through now, at least they are quick!
