A Collection of Mishmash Fabrics
In January, I joined my friends Cécile et Béa, in a log cabin quilt-a-long. The participants could chose any type of log cabin and every colours were accepted. One has to make 8 blocks in a month with the big reveal in March. Well, wouldn't you know that I didn't make the 8 little blocks in January.
I had to finish them this morning, February 1st. Not much was left to be done but it's still a "no cigar" finish. Being stuck in appointments that took longer than expected (and burned up most of my energy) on Monday and Tuesday, the little logs were left on the cutting table, waiting for me to show up and sew.
This being said, it is no excuse for my lack of preparation through out the month. I want to sincerely apologize to my friends from "outre-mer" for letting them wait so long for my post. I am sorry. That was very inconsiderate of me.
A hodge podge, a jumble, or a variety of fabrics have to come together to make my log cabins blocks. From polka-dots to plaids, from repro to modern and even some kids fabrics, all were called in to participate in the building of these cabins.
Okay back to the log cabin.
If you haven't spotted the fabrics you gave me, do not despair as I have 8 more blocks to construct for next month.
Don't forget to click the links because so many participants have wonderful blocks and some interesting layouts. Here are the links again :
Cécile at Patchwork Inspirations for the traditional log cabins
Béa at Une aiguille dans une botte de foin for the modern log cabins
Go check it out.
I'll also share with Sarah for "Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?" because I am glad they are done. :^D
Until next time ... I'll be logging.
