MY PLAYFULL LOG CABIN BLOCKS

I finally got these posted ,I was working on these just before I started blogging .
I got inspired after visiting tons of blogs, and I actually love the log cabin ,it is one of the first blocks that I tackled when I first started quilting full time, it's been now over 15 years.
So I wanted some kind of play full images for the center and then work around with various bright happy fabrics. Looked high and low, looked through my stash ,then I was bent over my sewing machine for nearly two months , and I made over 55 some blocks and I joined them , some with white in between and some without ,I have now about 12 joined they are a good baby size, haven't measured them I've been to busy sewing .






Some of these fabrics are from shirts, and various children's clothes the snoopy one in from pajamas , and of course some bought locally.





On the left I see a floral from my mom's robe that she forgot at my house..I called her and asked of course before cutting.











The red and pink ,green floral is from a shirt I bought for 50 cents at the flea market years ago , and the light blue with tiny pink and white is also moms robe , she picks nice prints for her robes so I can use them in quilts.








some close ups.









I pinned these on the curtain I just don't have any wall space to put it up and it's hard to photograph on the floor it comes out crooked, I will be posting the rest soon.

Hi, thanks for the comment on my blog. We have had heat here also, it has been hitting 100 degrees every day this month. Yesterday (August 19) was the first rain we have had this month.

I love your log cabin blocks. They are so distinct and cleverly made. Love how they interact with each other.

I love this quilt. Thanks for visiting my blog as you saw I have only a few followers. I've never done free flow quilting before so it will be interesting to see if I can actually learn how.
