I've sewn the binding and made a reservation for quilting with the long arm quilter. Sometime this summer I'll be able to show you a completely finished quilt!
Judy had me make the blocks differently than how I normally piece log cabin blocks. She has you cut the strips from the length of fabric, not width of fabric. This was to keep your fabric from stretching. Another change is you piece the blocks in courthouse steps design, the light and dark strip are both the same length each round.
I'm not sold on the length of fabric idea. I don't normally have a problem with the fabric stretching and if it does, it isn't hard to to make the block fit in. But I do like the courthouse step piecing method. I will probably piece my next log cabin quilt like that.
I've picked a couple more of the patterns in this book to make someday; but not this year.
Here are 2 of the side half-triangle blocks. There are 4 of them, but I forgot to take a picture of the others.
Another triangle block. The other block I made from this pattern had red berries. I'm trying not to make the blocks look the same. I also added the red circles.
I'm tired of making the hexie flowers that are needed for most of these blocks and decided to make some changes.
For this block I made a yo-yo flower and I really like it.
Now I'm working on the next 4 triangles.
