The Accidental Quilt Top

I'd been working on a quilt back for the Log Cabin Quilt Back, using left over 1.5-inch strips and other solids from my stash, and I was falling in love with the result.  This morning, after sleeping on it, I decided it was no longer a quilt back, but a new quilt top.  The Accidental Quilt Top in 67 inches square, and I'm calling it done!

Now, unfortunately, I need to get in gear and make three quilt backs for these quilt tops.

 This is Ben, my faithful supervisor.

Log Cabin Quilt Top is finished

I decided that sashing and a border would work will with these Log Cabin blocks.  I included bits and pieces of leftover fabric in most of the sashing pieces.

Log Cabin blocks using 1.5" wide strips means lots of pressing!

I'm so happy with how this quilt top turned out.  It's not perfect, but I love it!

A close up of all the sashing bits and pieces.  The finished measurement is 61" by 76".

Log Cabins

Well, I think I'm done building Log Cabin Blocks.  I stopped at five rounds and I'm calling them good.  Next I'll be adding some sashing.  Below are photos of the progress, up to this point.

Still building Log Cabins

There's been more construction on my house than on these Log Cabin blocks, but I'm getting there slowly but surely.  Right now the blocks measure about 11.5 inches square, which would make a small 44 x 55 inch quilt; so I'm going to keep going and make the blocks larger.  I have no plans for this quilt, and right now bigger seems better.

Hope you're having a great week.  What have you been working on?

Building Log Cabins

 I've been wanting to make a Log Cabin block quilt; this is my first one.  (I've made a couple of quilts with the Courthouse Step variation.)  I ordered up some Cotton + Steel Moon Rabbit in Navy and two Kona Skinny Strip pack.  I've gotten two complete rows around the centers.  Lots more to do, but so far, I'm happy with how the blocks are turning out.  I'm being creatively lazy and just taking the strips in the order they're on the roll.

The bottom photo is my attempt to get a decent photo, yesterday.  No luck, because of the stiff breeze.

SDMQG Vintage Quilt Revival QAL ~ April Blocks

These blocks are called Mosaic No 8 and Tilted Star, made for April.  Now, I'm all caught up!

I made two of the Mosaic No 8, one hot and one cool.  I'll decide later which one I'll use in the quilt, the other will certainly find a good home, perhaps in the quilt back.

SDMQG Vintage Quilt Revival QAL ~ 2nd March Block

This is the 2nd March block.  No paper-piecing, but lots of bias edges; I spray-starched the heck out of those pieces.  I used the Washi print because I really didn't want an 8.5" solid color diamond in the middle of the block.  I'm hoping to be caught up with the April blocks by Monday.  Goals are good.
