I’m starting another quilt. I don’t really have a solid plan yet, but it’s meant to be a gift. For christmas. For someone who does not read this blog – my brother. So, I feel pretty safe talking about it here. Hopefully you can keep a secret dear internet!
I took the Log Cabin block class last week and learned how to make these blocks quickly with some handy tricks. I picked a green/cream/aqua colour palette that I think he’ll like. I also decided to not do the traditional “light colours on one corner/darks on the other corner” and opted for concentric squares of lights and darks. I don’t know the size or the design I’m going for, but I’m pretty proud that it’s July and I’ve started to work on this so early. It’s totally out of character for me!

I like the variety of prints you use while keeping with the color scheme. You have a great library of fabrics! I happened upon your post about your recent Libery Lawn dress–very chic! I put it in my blog (I hope you don’t mind) I had several Facebook comments about how nice your dress was.
great start! It’s going to be a beauty! A Manly beauty, that is…
Love the colours!
what a lucky brother! 🙂
Your log cabin is just great!!I love it so much! such a good choice of colours for men!(I think that’s quite difficult to patch for them…)
Waiting for more…
Thanks for the class and the hospitality, anywhere that offers chocolate chip cookies along with sewing classes is a winning combination! Blogged about you (and Johanna) on my blog.
aviary, neptune and amy butler in one… you got me sold!
I love the combination of colors! I especially love the fabrics with the writing. Where do you like to shop for fabrics?
