The second house is done with a variation of the Hens and Chicks block (small block). Our October challenge block if 'Farm Life' and we had lots of chickens on the farm when I was a kid and it was my job to collect eggs. We had a very mean rooster - let's just say, I was SO glad when the chickens were gone.
Today I will play in my Civil War scraps to make all the 6" Log Cabin blocks. Since so many members made them, I thought I would make all the variations of the 'Log'. Standard log cabin, court house steps, squared, spiral, fanned, and pineapple. If you can suggest some others, I will add them.
I try very hard to make sure my quilt math is up to date. But math question! How come a 15 minute FMQ takes almost 3 hours to pick out? My OMG project is in time out for a couple of days and then I need to concentrate on the finish - and NO picking out.
