Log cabins - ALYoF
I was looking at my Q4 FAL list if there is something I can finish and I felt like starting something new is a better idea. My real goal for Q4 was to find a job and none of these projects were really important to me.
I decided to do what I like the most. Just play around with fabrics. But it's not actually playing! I'm decluttering my sewing space. The best way to do it is to sew the pieces together and throw out those unsuitable bits. This is going to be ongoing project for the year. Yeah, I'm going to take my time.
Scrappy Log Cabin QAL just fits the bill so I started with pink and made first 3 blocks. Fun but I needed some plan. You know how the right color order is important to me, lol.
So I created central block. That's the one with yellow if you are unsure. I don't have enough of yellow to make up whole block anyway.
This is exercise of letting go. Seriously this last block was challenging! Those fabrics just don't match but let's look at it from distance.
It would make up pretty quilt for sure but I want to make wall hanging. Some sort of wall protection which will go next to bed and will also add a bit of color to the room. This one is going to be B side. My idea is to make it double sided.
To keep me on track I'm making it my January goal of ALYoF. Just the top, not the whole thing since A side is still in thinking stage.
This whole thing also fits into SewMyStash2015 project and Oh Scrap! Check out the links if you are interested to play along. Buttons on the side bar. The main thing is - have fun!
