Log Cabin, Here I Come!

The next lesson in my quilt class was the Log Cabin block.  Had ya fooled, huh?  You probably thought I was headed on vacation.  No, no... just quilting away here!  We learned that the log cabin block has a great many variations, but I decided to stick to the basic log cabin block for my first two squares.  Then I mixed it up a tad for the second two squares.

We spent Friday night "quopping".  Two of my friends are taking this quilting class with me (or I with them) and we all scrapbook as well, so we figured when we got together we would do either craft.  So, instead of cropping now, we quop. 

Two of us this night worked on our quilts.  One of us scrapbooked.  It was a lot of fun until a gremlin decided to take up residence in my friend's sewing machine.  She got it all figured out in the end (thanks to chocolate!) and for a while we looked like dueling quilters.

I get the most stressed out when I'm cutting/trimming.  I check, double-check, triple-check that everything is aligned properly before I cut.  This part of quilting is stressful to me.

It felt good to get this piece done and I'm fairly confident that I did it RIGHT this time.  I still have to fix the other piece.

What do you think?


  1. I think it's beautiful! Your fabrics are so pretty. I like the idea of duelling sewing machines! And once again, we learn that a little bit of chocolate can cure most things.

  2. Go Kai! And yeah for quilting and chocolate!

  3. gorgeous! I think chocolate cures everything...but fixing a sewing machine!? That one is new to me!

  4. I like it. It looks really good. And I also take forever to cut things.

  5. Looking good :-) And I love the sound of quopping! xx


I love hearing what you have to say. Thank you for sharing yourself with me!
