More log cabins


I'm a bit of a fan of the log cabin block - a fact which I have no doubt will not have escaped your notice if you ever read this blog - so when I feel like making blocks, it's one of my go-to blocks. I didn't sew at all today, as my brother-in-law was down visiting from Leicester, but in the past few days, among other things, I've been sewing these scrappy log cabins. Alex helped me choose what colours to use and then I've been piecing them using small bits of neutrals and blues. As it happens, there are actually 16 of them, but it was easier to photograph 9 together as it meant I didn't have to move the rug!

Now I have a hankering to make more log cabins - I'm thinking about some in another colour scheme, but not sure what yet. Maybe something with green - purple perhaps?

I love all the different layouts one can make with log cabin blocks!

I always love a blue/neutral colour combination and you just can't go wrong with log cabin blocks although I usually gravitate towards a sawtooth star when I don't know what to do

It looks so pretty with the red centers and the neutrals. Very nice work!

This is lovely.

I adore green and purple together.
