There are so many ways to set log cabin blocks. Here are a few simple settings I came up with today using EQ and the reds and tans.
One of my favorite log cabins is Mary’s Autumn Cabin. Actually, Mary is quite productive. I went to her blog and did a search for “log cabin” and came up with a dozen or so quilts. So, if you want to see more, go to Mary’s blog, and in the top left where you can search, type in “log cabin” and see what all comes up.
Being the competitive quilter that I am, I was thinking about these two log cabin quilts I need to get made and I’d like for my friends in blogland to make log cabins with me. All of you who mentioned that you were wanting to make a log cabin quilt, here’s your chance (and, you never know when you may get another chance like this in your lifetime!) 🙂
The quilts shown above finish at 61″ x 79″. The blocks are 9″ finished, using 1-1/2″ cut strips. Each quilt requires 48 blocks. I think I can make 2 blocks a day. I think if I start tomorrow, I can have 48 blocks made in 24 days. Actually, I think I can make them all in 23 days because I leave for Paducah on April 23 and I’d like to have them all done then to take to show Elaine.
Who will join me? Do you think you can make 48 log cabin blocks by April 24??? Just to be nice (and you all know I’m so very nice!), I’ll make the deadline April 30. I’ll be back from Paducah by then and if there are any takers on this challenge, we’ll figure out a way to get all our pictures posted by then.
The blocks do not have to be sewn together to form a top — just make the blocks.
