Can't believe it's the end of June! We've been at the cabin over 3 months already! Love being here for the change of seasons, although it was hailing two days ago!! Not warm on a consistent basis...doesn't bother me.
I had participated in a sewalong last month where we made a bunch of log cabin blocks. I decided to use mine in a different way. First I made a cover for my sewing machine and called it my June Mini!! That was for Wendy Reed (constantquilter)!
I enjoyed making the log cabin blocks and kept going-- then I made two placemats for our table!
You can see that I got a bit bolder with the second set of blocks! They are 6" and my strips are 1-1/4" unfinished.
Our daughter has been staying with us after having decided that life in a studio apartment in San Francisco wasn't so great. It's been one of the silver lining results of Covid--we've had a chance to spend lots of time with her.
Anyway, she wanted to know where was HER placemat??!! So I started on more log cabin blocks this week. She was very particular about the colors, though!!
Our son has now arrived at the cabin with his family so I'll need to make more placemats, I think. It'll be a little harder with two little kids, though, so I don't expect to be getting much sewing done.
Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe!
