{ Progress on the Cabin }

I've finally finished adding all the rounds to the remaining blocks and trimmed them all using the Log Cabin Trim Tool. I had a little delay when I ran out of light colored prints and needed to order more.

 This is a lot of trimmings.

Purchasing the Log Cabin Trim Tool was really worth it. All the blocks are a  perfect 8 1/2 inches even though some of the rounds are a little wonky. 
Now comes the fun part.....trying to figure out the pattern to sew all these perfect blocks together in.
I planned on a 8x8 grid for a square quilt, which gives me several choices. I'll be on hands and knees this evening trying out all the options.
Me thinks it may be time for a design wall.


  1. I love your log cabin blocks! I am making some also using this ruler and 2" strips. I recently purchased the Creative Grids Pineapple ruler and can't wait to try it out. Can't wait to see what setting option you choose. My favorite is barn raising.

  2. Those are really lovely blocks, the colours are great! Have fun playing with layouts. :)

  3. That sure is a pretty stack of blocks, Janine! Can't wait to see them all laid out and wishing you the best in your design process!

  4. That is a lot of trimmings. Have fun trying out different settings.
