It’s been a big week. A sad one, but we have said our goodbyes and hopefully we can draw a line under the turmoil and just push on through.
And as I do in times of turmoil (who needs drugs or alcohol when you have quilting?) I played around with something new.
I had a feeling I was doing it wrong – I’ve made a million log cabin blocks and this one just didn’t flow properly and now I think I’ve stuffed it. When you do your log cabins do your darks extend all the way to the end on the outside? Or am I overthinking it?
What can I say? My brain is cotton wool right now.
I’ve been thinking of making a log cabin quilt for a few months now and last night I came across this lovely blog with the most divine quilt:
and I just knew I had to use all those millions of reproductions I have to make one like it.
I’ve made my logs finish at 3/4” which I thought was tiny but now that I’ve made it, I think maybe I need to finish them at 1/2”. And then I thought maybe I’m a total lunatic because how many blocks will you need to make if they finish at 4” rather than 6”? It’s not like I’ve got nothing else to do!
So I don’t know. I think I’ll go and make a 4” block and see if I like that one more.
Dilemmas. First world problems of the highest nature.
See you soon
p.s. thanks so much for all the lovely comments on my Nan. We’ll miss her. We already do.
