You may remember this collection from a few months ago. I shared how I made some 10" off center log cabin blocks with a fat quarter bundle. Let's see those fabrics again:
|Stella Fabrics by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham|
Let's see what I mean
|3" center square and 2" fat logs of a darker color|
|Keep adding logs to two sides ONLY of the center square, which btw, is no longer in the center!!!|
|When beginning with a light center square, you end with light colored strips|
I sewed them into a quilt center using a theme I like to call:
When Four Blocks Become Five
|Sweet Baby Logs quilt center|
I added borders, again only using the fat quarters, so that limited me to pieces. So, I stayed with the 10" length of the blocks. I quilted it the other day on my Handi Quilter Sweet 16. Isn't she lovely? I changed the name from Amazing Logs to Sweet Baby Logs because the fabrics are soft colors that make me think of little babies (and my grandchildren!).
|Sweet Baby Logs: 44" x 44"|
This is now a 9 page pattern I offer at my Craftsy site. It gives detailed instructions for cutting and stitching the blocks (using all the pictures I had here two months ago; that post is no longer available).
These blocks are so much fun to make and work so well with fat quarters. One fat quarter EACH of a light and a dark will make four blocks.
And what about the grays? Did I do something with those? Glad you asked! As you can see, I haven't finished the last two dark gray blocks or the last two light gray blocks, but you can see how the mirror images work with my pattern.
|Extra blocks. Not sure what I'll do with them|
