It's Tuesday! Time for Log Cabin Loonies!!!









Timeless Traditions





























I cannot get that picture out of the middle of the quilt picture for anything...have no idea what I did, but you get the idea of the quilt!!!




I find quilting inspiration everywhere, but a big source is Pinterest.  I find this photo credited to Timeless Traditions, but think maybe she just took the picture?  This is a label on the quilt, and looks like it was hanging at a quilt show.  I, alas, cannot read it...but I salute you, you fabulous quilter you!!  What a gorgeous log cabin variation quilt you made!!!!

Just a little inspiration for us Loonies!!








I am a tiny bit sad...I cut out one zillion!  (slight exaggeration) pieces for the next step on my own log cabin journey, and I cannot find them ANYWHERE!!!  I think they got put in the trash...that is the only place they could possible be.  But I am cutting again, and making good progress.  

Throwing my pieces away is not what I mean about using my stash, LOL!!!!!!!













Here is my pile of centers, plus one piece sewed on...400 blocks.  ONward!!!!




See this knife?  I think it is copper?  Or something...anyway, I sliced my thumb very well today, using it to cut apples into slices.  It bled like anything!!  I seriously had to apply pressure to it!!  Anyway...it makes me think maybe I need to wear a cutting glove while using the rotary cutter.  Do any of you use one??



This is my gift for a lucky Log Cabin Loonie, for this week.  I just found this book...it is a SIGNED copy of Yoko Saito's Traditional block patterns. If you don't know this quilt artist, she is famous for her neutral, lovely soft toned quilts.



These pretty blocks are by Els!  I was delighted when she sent me her picture...these are HAND pieced!!!  How cool, huh?  Thank you, Els!!!



So link up below, and there will be a random drawing for a winner, this week!!

I've only been a little loony this week, but I'm up to 30 blocks! Thanks for the fun!

Indeed that is a beautiful quilt! Els little log cabins are really pretty too! I cut my finger badly last week with my rotary cutter. I thought it would never stop bleeding! ---"Love"

I do like that log cabin at the top.
Ouch! Sorry about your finger. Maybe just wear a cutting glove when using that knife. :)
My Mom sliced the tip off a finger with a rotary cutter many years ago. It bleed profusely. She was much more careful after that, but I don't think she ever used those gloves.

400 centers, wow!!!! Sorry you lost your precut pieces, that was a lot of work to remake. I have never heard of a cutting glove but am certainly clumsy enough to need one. I generally use one of those sectioned apple cutters just so I DON'T have to use a sharp knife on an unstable object like an apple!:)

The little log cabin quilt with the star centers is adorable. I think I have seen that photo someplace too.

Thanks for the great prize offer!

I love that courthouse cabin with the star centers--so gorgeous.

I canNOT believe you lost all those pieces, Julie!!;(((--that's terrible--how discouraging...

My hubby hides sharp knives from me...he always does the chopping for me...hope it heals quickly....

How sad about the missing pieces. I hate cutting. No, I don't wear any kind of sewing gloves but do wear gardening gloves. That's where I get most my cuts.

Tired Teacher said...

Cuts can happen so quickly - I've had a few rotary cutter mishaps, but I still don't wear a glove. It's maddening to lose something like the pieces. Murphy's Law - you will find the pieces AFTER you cut new ones.

Ouch! No, I don't wear a glove when cutting.

Kyle said...

Hope you find those pieces. I guarantee they'll be the last place you look.

The star in the Courthouse Steps setting is a winner.

Hello. I have just happened on your blog, linking from “Quilting is more fun than Housework “. Checking out all the Log Cabin Loonies posts. Yes, I use a Klutz glove most of the time. Especially when cutting small or skinny pieces.
