Log Cabin Lunacy!!


Log cabin quilts are so fun!  And Julie at JulieKQuilts has asked quilters to join in on posting log cabin quilt progress every full moon.  Sooooo I had to join in on this fun.....so this week I started a new log cabin quilt using up some of my strips and scraps!  The link to her blog post.....
http://juliekquilts.blogspot.com/2016/05/log-cabin-lunacy.html

The first photo shows the 1" strips and so far the blocks in the photo are 2½" but I am planning on making them 4½".  The other blocks are 2" strips and so far those blocks are 5½" and I am planning on making them 8½".  I am using a lot of Pat Sloan fabrics and will be adding some Lori Holt fabrics and many others.  I may use a combination of the different sizes in the quilt.


If you want to check my past blog posts for log cabin quilts check the label log cabin block.  Also the last blog post I did in March shows the little blocks I made for cabin posies quilt using 1" strips.
