A change of Pace

I spent some of the week waiting for some fabric to arrive - turned out that I was short of paler background batik fabrics - and I thought that I'd add a few more brights and darks too.... 

Of course, as luck would have it, by the time the fabric arrived I'd caught my DD2's lurgy and haven't been up to sewing since.  No little blocks from the 365 challenge for me this week!
The only sewing I've managed is to finish a few orphan blocks and make a small quilt top.  The centre rounds of these four log cabins were a creditable attempt to use up some fabric from another quilt, apart from the one that had a seam the wrong way (on one of the pieced strips that I'd used) and the one that had a chunk out of the edge, for some reason!  You know, just the sort of things that might put you off actually reaching a finish!

I'm pleased to say that a few moment of unpicking / resewing / trimming and I was all set up to add a couple more rounds with various fabrics that I was happy to give up.  It's more a thing of character than a thing of beauty, but it is made with love!

Sashing and border took the size to 36" square.

Over the next few weeks I'll try to baste it, quilt it and bind it - it's been too long since I've actually finished even a small quilt! 


  1. Nice finish--I love log cabin blocks--I particularly like the light corner fabric you chose hugs, Julierose

  2. I've been itching to make log cabins again....oh if only I didn't already have 50 other projects started!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
