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.

I was just parking my car this morning when I saw a plastic bag on top of a garbage bin with some items that someone doesn't want anymore, and among them I found these awesome embroidery patterns, they must of thought I would be coming around LOL. They are new and unused this one has 36 traditional folklore motifs inside they are so pretty , I don't know when I will be able to work on them I have so many projects going on, but one of these days I will get around to it.
The blouse pattern is not inside it just has the design for the embroidery . I love it when I find items I like It's like going shopping , its like a surprise without having to take out your wallet HE HE!!.
