Friday, November 12, 2010

work in progress

this morning I am ready to put up a pic of the log cabin block...This is much larger than the block I normally work with....The pattern called for a 12" block..normal.  Well; I am trying something different; a 22" block. I wanted to see how it would work..So; here goes,  the block is center block plus 5 light and 5 dark colours. the usual; just larger..It will take 16 blocks for the quilt top; instead of 64. So; we will see what happens..seems fine so far. I'll post another as I can arrange the blocks a little ....
