Log Cabin Loonies!!

 Squirrel!  I love this term, by the way...who came up with that; describing going off on a tangent with our quilt making?  It perfectly describes how I go along with my quilting, LOL!!  I took out this quilt, that I started about maybe a year ago...Love this one!  I can just imagine a big quilt, made from these blocks, on a wood frame bed in a cabin in the woods.  That is a dream of mine!!
 I have lots done, and lots cut out, and lots of just strips cut, also!!!
 These blocks are from 1 1/4 inch wide strips.  Here are the measurements for the logs, if anyone is interested.
Here is the prize for next week...fat quarters of these fabrics.  I think they are modern and pretty!





Congratulations to Mary R!  She is our winner from last week.


Please link up below and show us your lunacy!  (I mean...log cabin blocks....Hahahaha!)

Hugs to all,

I am just the same. Squirrel!! The first I heard the term was in the movie Up, when the dog introduces himself, sees a squirrel, and starts all over again.

I love that block and something I would like to make too. I bet that would be nice with my woolly flannels.

That's so exciting that I won--Thank you! I love the colors of your blocks this week, they would be perfect in a cabin.

I'm pretty squirrely too. And that's another luscious log cabin you have in the works. Good luck with that dream!

The warmth of the center red hearths really pop amidst the brown logs. Really eye-catching!

Those colors are amazing

Honestly, making a bed size quilt with 1 1/2 inch logs might really be lunacy! Lovely, yes but lunacy as you would be crushed under the weight of it! I love tiny blocks but not sure I would want to sleep under them. Such fun though!

What is it about log cabin blocks that make my heart sing? I’ll try to post a picture of mine today.

I guess I'm just not as looney as some folks, I started my log cabin quilt at least 9 years ago, out of 1 1/2" strips, so just not as tiny. One WOF (width of fabric) from each of my 1800's reprints is what I'm using. So all the colors I have with neutral shirtings mainly for the lighter side. Love yours in the browns too! Mine got put away when we moved and I occasionally would purchase new fabrics representing that era, so would cut a strip each and add it to the project box with the rest of the begun parts and blocks. It will be however big and however many quilt tops when I use up all the strips and pieces... no plan at this time, no hurry either. Finally got back to sewing on it this summer.

Log cabins are so addictive. I could make a new one every year and never tire of them.
