HONEY BUN LOG CABIN QUILT

I won two of these fun Easter towels from "As the Quilt Turns", aren't they adorable???
Actually, everyone that entered her giveaway won two...isn't that fun? Thanks so much Becky!!


Yesterday we went to the Museum of Natural History and Aviation. We took the Metro and got the whole Washington D.C experience.

Later that evening I wanted to try the Honey Bun Log Cabin. I swore I would never do a log cabin but...what was that Kelly...."Never say Never"

You can find the video for this Honey Bun Log Cabin here. They also have the deal of the day and their honey bun is going for 4.95.....that is a bargain in itself.
I made five blocks from the "Swanky" honey bun. I love these colors, so Fits the Easter Holiday.

Did I need to start another project? No!!! What should have I done? Tell myself NO!!! Did I, NO!!! Truly I need to stay away from these videos...obviously I can't control myself.....

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter Sabbath.....

I must say I'm not fond of the Log Cabin Quilt myself; however, I love making them. There is something satisfying about it.

The towels are so cute! I know you are enjoying them. Your log cabin blocks really are swanky. The quilt will be adorable.

I saw those videos and almost ordered a couple honey buns but I was able to control myself for once. I liked the other video where they cut triangles from strip sets. They always have such great videos. Simple projects with wonderful results.

Happy Easter!

Love the towels, they are as cute as can be. My husband and I spent time in D.C. a couple of years ago and played tourist the entire time. We loved all the museums. BTW I love log cabin quilts.

They are such beautiful Easter- like blocks Barb- I just love them. I am a big fan of log cabin but have only made two- they are alot of work especially when you use 1 and 1/2 inch strips but well worth the effort.
Your towels are so cute too.
You find the greatest things. Thanks for sharing.
A very Happy Easter to you and yours.
Regards, Anna

Adorable towels Barb! I love your blocks too. I started a honey bun log cabin when they first came out in Moda's Sunshine line. But never finished it. Maybe I will pull it out. I never liked the log cabin block until seen it done up in this size!

I've never tried a log cabin but maybe I should! It looks very cute!
