Wordless Log Cabins






Oh come on. Wordless? Me?

I have been thinking about the recipient of this quilt, and what they might think is interesting, and if the blocks are too dull, and wondering what fabric I could use for the negative space to make the blocks shine, until finally I had the most free-ing thought: I want this quilt! I would love to snuggle up with this, and feel fabrics silky and jeansy, flannely and velvety.

I reckon if I want it, someone else might like it too. I have to stop double-guessing every strip I place, and just get on with making something I'm proud of.

Your wonky blocks are so fun! Since I am a quilter who almost always needs a pattern, I am wondering if you have a tutorial for those!

Hi Diann, thanks for your kind words! I don't have a pattern, but try googling "improv log cabin tutorial" - there's a lot of good tutes out there!

You are absolutely right! Go for it! Keep the quilt! I tend to give everything away too...

How pretty, Elisheva! I love the mix of textures and the pops of red - it's going to be such a fun quilt!! Wonky log cabins are one of my favorite things to make - but I don't get to do it very often....


Whoop whoop!!
