I participated in Cecile and Bea's little quilt-a-long since January involving log cabins. What I loved about this is that there were NO rules. Well, that was also pretty difficult as well. You could do whatever size, style you wanted.
I chose to make mine mini, and I was using that same French General fabric I have been trying to get rid of!! These little blocks didn't use up very much, I'll tell you!
Each block consisted of 4 little 3" log cabins. Two were courthouse steps; the other two were more traditional. The strips were 1-1/4" cut;
to set them, I chose 4 little orphan blocks I'd made for the swap I did with Janet O last year which I rejected. They aren't log cabin but they are French General so I figured that was ok.
I put them on point and set them with two different shirtings I had.
Quilting? Well that's another story. Let's just say I should practice more!! My "feathers" are pretty sad! And my quilting is very inconsistent. One good thing is how much I enjoyed using my Janome 6600 free motion quilting. What a great machine.
Here is what I tried to do:
I am naming this little quilt "The French General downsizes to a log cabin"!!
Cute, hunh? I usually hate coming up with names but this one was fun.
Did you do their little quilt along??
