Building a Log Cabin

With so much rain, it has been fun to build a log cabin indoors.  Although I would LOVE a real log cabin.  Ha - when I posted this set on my Facebook page, I noticed the block that was 'wrong'.  I went thru every pile of groups of 10 to check how many were 'oopsies' for repair.  Luckily it was just the one and it was easier to just make a new block.

I dug into my gifted plaids and wovens because these blocks needed to be up-sized and there wasn't enough of what was supplied.  There has been an on-the-side discussion of the age of some of this fabric.  Those pinks and blues have been reproduced several times with a little bit of degree variation.  I have so many of the bubble gum pinks from so many decades with some not even 100% cottons.  

As you can see, I didn't have enough of the blue/gray plaid so had to use a different  one for the last 20 blocks - and that was all there was of that one!  Now that all of the blocks are done, I will spend a day putting this into a flimsie and maybe even get the two borders on.

It took me a while to find where I stored my Tiny Tuesday blocks - I had to lay them all out to see where I was with these and what needed catching up on.  I just need to make the new orange ones - although some of my yellow blocks are on the orange side.  I really am lacking some colors and may have to treat myself to some FQ basics.

I think I will get my little blocks done up before I start back to building a log cabin.....

Sewingly Yours,


  1. Two more beautiful quilts. You are a quilting machine. Lol

  2. Both sets of blocks will make pretty quilts..

  3. Your blue and pink log cabins are so pretty. Would make a sweet baby quilt.
