I decided I needed to make a grey, orange and brown log cabin block to go with my Dresden Plate. Log cabin is such a fun, easy block to do. I’ve made several now, so it feels like a piece of cake.
That’s two blocks done for my future sampler. I’m loving the pace of doing a block a month. What a leisurely way to make a quilt!
The next block we’re learning for our ‘à la carte‘ quilting series is the Schoolhouse block. I’m ready to learn to do ‘y’ seams and thinking my schoolhouse is going to be made of woodgrain fabric for sure! (I don’t think you can ever go wrong with woodgrain fabric)

I love the brown with white outline flowers on the left. I have dreams of some day making a quilt or two. Mostly square patches although a log cabin would be nice.
What is that bear fabric? It’s great.
Beautiful. I especially love the brown/orange/fall colours. Yum!
your log cabin block it’s beautiful! i love those brown with leaves fabric!
i see one of my favourite liberty prints!
i’m finally delurking to say how excellent this is, as usual. and i’m totally with you on the wood grain fabric–love it!
I love how this looks: comforting and traditional but still very fresh. The Dresden Plate one below was also lovely. It’s fun watching you post these!
You have an excellent eye for colour/fabric choices, I love this block.
