HQAL: Log Cabin

At our last 3 weeks posting I made the decision for my next project. I decided on a kit I’ve had for some time. Arbor Lane

Once I got it out, read the directions, I knew I was going to tweak the design and go with a basic log cabin. Below is the material the kit came with.

Using the dimensions on this chart, I made my templates and pieced together my first trial block. As I began cutting out the rest of the material for the blocks, I quickly discovered there wouldn’t be enough green.

I had some green fabric on hand but it was flimsy and had a slight sheen. Another practice block told me ‘no’ right away. Trying to avoid in store shopping, I took a chance and purchased two additional greens from Joann’s. I was delighted I had one perfect match.

Lighting and space is always an issue but I love the colors and look of these blocks.

Here’s a shot showing the true colors and patterns better.

Now to do some blog hopping and visit the pages of the other hand quilters. Please join me 🙂
