This is what our challenge is for this month.....
I have always loved the look of a log cabin quilt and the versatility of it is amazing.
Now was my chance....Island Batik makes me step out of my comfort zone.
So when this challenge came up my sister asked me if I ever saw this ruler.
I said no, but was up for the challenge.
Here are my log Cabin squares. I used a lot of scraps but I wasn't thinking, I've got my large scraps and didn't think at the time about how big I wanted to make it. If I had thought this through, I would have just made it scrappy instead of each square the same.. Unfortunately for me, I ran out and was only able to make a baby quilt. My sister, Jeanette, made a much larger one and I am so glad. This quilt is so pretty and just knew it would be amazing bigger. Just click on my sister's name and it will take you to her blog.
Isn't it adorable?????
It took me months to cut up my log cabin squares with the ruler, I was so afraid of making a mistake, even tho I had done a practice square out of random fabric scraps. It wasn't until my sister, Jeanette, cut in to hers that I bit the bullet and did so myself.
Then I quilted it with Aurifil Thread. I think this is my favorite color because I have another one similar in color and it is almost gone as well.
Well...this is a long winded post today.
Taking a breath.....
So...as I am tootaling along, I came across this fun fun you tube.....and yep...I just had to do it.
I had a Crystal Cove Island Stack (equivalent to a layer cake but Island Batik Fabrics).
This works up really fast using the Island Batik Stack. It is always fun to work with Island Batik fabrics because as I am cutting I think...oh....I love this fabric, no, this one....
I had taken pictures of the process but can't seem to find the pictures, same with the other quilt above.
Well, nothing like posting the last day of the month.
Have a wonderful Christmas Season!!
