Traditional log cabin. Totally fun. I too, added a little bit from my stash to both. I also wanted to do a wonky log cabin super bad, thus...
Hope you like them, Hilary.
Now, onto the March block. I have a confession to make. I really love Batik fabric. I'm fascinated with the colors, and how they swirl together. I also wanted to experiment with linen, linen blends, and cotton. And I didn't prewash. I wanted it to be, frankly, a surprise when I washed the whole quilt, what with the different shrinkage rates and junk. This might bite me in the butt, and all the colors might run together and the fabrics might pull strangely. Funky charm, right? Anyway, the blocks I want to make are called "Map of the States". Here is the link to the tutorial: http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2009/07/map-of-the-states-blocks.html
This woman is amazing. Her quilts are beautiful. She has many, many tutorials that have helped me, in my quest to quilt. Also, her free motion stitching is impeccable.
I would like the blocks to 9.5" square. Also, if it's not a problem, would you send back any decent scraps with the finished blocks? That would be great.
I really hope you guys have fun with this, and I can't wait to see the finished blocks!
Packages, ready! (and sent!!)
