While Liam napped, I had a chance to do my April blocks for “Bee Happy“. Leslie asked for wonky “square in square” log cabins and she gave us a selection of beautiful orange and grey fabrics to work from. I had never done a log cabin before, much less a wonky one, so I planned the first block out before proceeding. I think the hardest part was making it become a square at the end!
I just happened to have leftover scraps of the dark grey solid (is that Kona Coal?) and the Katie Jump Rope “Ribbon Flower” from Abi’s March block.
I had barely any fabric left for the second block, so I had to wing it out of necessity. I have to say, I actually had more fun doing the second block, because I was really making it up as I went along. I would love to make an entire quilt of wonky log cabins, even though they are quite labor intensive and take a lot of thought (and pressing!)
