Forgot to post this!



As I mentioned before, I am making some more of the wonky log cabin blocks, this time in warm colours. It's making a nice dent in my scrap basket, and so far I haven't even touched the strips in the shoe boxes of strips (which are a lot emptier after I did all the cool colour blocks). I'd really like to get rid of all my accumulated scraps - or at least, a lot of them - so I think this might be the way to go. I may also offer some stuff up to people who do charity quilts - I have a lot of pre-cut squares, for instance - which I don't think I'm really likely ever to use.

Anyway, there are a lot more of these warm colour blocks on the go and I plan to work on them some more today. Tomorrow I might make some blocks for the April block lotto, but I won't be able to show them yet, so perhaps I'll show more of these blocks.

And yes, I did redesign my blog, by playing around with the template designer on Blogger Draft - I know it looks kind of autumnal rather than spring-like, but it suits me. I'm sure I'll fiddle with it some more before too long, as it seems to get easier and easier to do - thank goodness!

I like your blog design Kate. My new design is more fall like as well. Good news is that we won't have to change it come fall!

These are so nice I'm tempted to make some myself! I'd swap you pre-cut squares, but I doubt I've got anything you don't already have of mine. (Which reminds me that I haven't forgotten your African block except I haven't made it yet:-) Are we doing stars or any design?)

Hope you are keeping well and that you have a good break with the kids.

Hi Kate
Am glad to see that the lure of swapping has got ALQS4 up & running. Like you I am also working through my scrap boxes & have decided that this years quilts will be going to our local Womens Refuge House.

Love the new blog design. I wanted to jazz up my blog too, but I can't find the new template designer.
