Log Cabin Blocks
The son of one of my Guild's members was a resident of Fort McMurray and he was a victim of the recent terrible forest fires. He lost everything including several quilts made by his Mom, Rose. We are making log cabin blocks for Rose to make him another quilt and she will put them together over the summer months. I didn't see any guidance other than they are to finish at 8" and they are to have a cream 2" finished center block to be used as a signature block. So I jumped in and made a block. I decided to make my block using the colour green for renewal. I think it turned out well but then I reread the email.....
Oops...she wanted them to be made with random sized logs. So I made another. :) I will donate both blocks because she still may be able to incorporate it in the quilt...or on the back.
I was able to make both blocks using fabrics from my parts bins, strip bins and string bins. I have many quilts waiting to be made from my scrappy stash....
