Design Wall Monday


Have you noticed lately the Log Cabin quilts that are all over Blogland? I have and even though I was going to try hard not to start anything new, I started something new.  My 1 1/2" strip bin was over flowing, my neutral strip bin was over flowing. Perfect reason to start something new.

The first 16 blocks are on the wall, the next 20 will go on later today.  I want a 12 X 12 setting for my queen size bed and will use the barn raising design.  I can't wait to get a bunch more blocks made so I can start to rearrange them.

See fabulous design wall projects at Patchwork Times.  And isn't Judy L's quilt stunning!!!


Part 1 of this post was written before 5 am this morning.  Now I have Part 2 at 8:30something.  Knowing I wouldn't get a chance to just sit and sew later today, I did it first this morning.  Now I have my next round up on the wall, with one block needing a quick turn.  I have to get my hinny outside for a while before it gets too hot.  
See my log cabin road map over on the left?  I use big sticky notes to block out my center so I could sort of get the blocks turned the right direction.

You've got a great start. My 2" strips are overflowing but I am trying not to start anything. I have a bunch of little things to work on and then get them out of the house. One of these days I do need to make a dent in the 2" strips though!

It looks great, a log cabin is on my to do list, but since I am fixing to move and am trying to get Christmas presents finished before I move, it is definitely not going to happen for a while!

What's not to love about a log cabin. I have never made one but feel that may be rectified shortly.

We are so easily swayed from the "I'm not going to start something new" plan, aren't we? I, too, love the log cabin (have done 3)because they all look so different with different fabrics, colors and patterns. And they go together so quickly, too. Fast and fun.

You just can't go wring with Log Cabin blocks. They are to classic and beautiful. Barn Rising is my favorite lay out.

Nancy said...

Great-looking blocks! You will have enough for your queen-sized bed in no time.

Annie said...

Oh, these blocks really show what fun you are having making them because they look fun too! What a great quilt you are going to get from blocks like these!

This is such a wonderful block and I haven't seen it's comeback on the net. I think your barn raising set will be gorgeous.

No I hadn't noticed the new trend,good thing I already made one earlier in the year...got that one marked of the list! Love how yours is coming together!

Mary said...

The dreaded Log Cabin block...Yes, I've seen some but I try to ignore them... Yours are going together much quicker than I could ever make them. I'm too much of a friend to the Froggin' tool when I make them. I had to start something NEW this week also. Must be in the air, or the BLOG0-O-SPHERE

Log cabins are one of my favorite blocks and was one that I made my first quilt from. There are just so many settings to use. Your setting is looking great! Now I want to do another one.!
