Now I have seen a few more made up I am a little more confident that I can make this block from stash. When I sorted my scraps out I didn't actually have too many of quilting quality which surprised me. I also have a spotlight trip plannen for this weekend so that often re-inspires me :lol: $3m clearance fabric here I come!

Cutting out is most of the work. Once you have done that its probably 20-30 mins of sewing and its done :)
Patchwork is always like that. Cutting accurately is the longest part.

well i bit the bullet and went to the quilt shop in town and had the lady sort me out a whole colour scheme for mine, now to either cut with scissors or bribe DH to let me go to Grizles and bribe her to cut them with her rotary cutter :whip: :rotfl:

:vibes: :vibes:
I presume you guys have seen that I posted the block for next month?
So hopefully we are all going to be done with our log cabins by the end of the Jan.
Doesn't really matter if you aren't but its a nice easy goal to reach :)

The simple 9 patch?
Nice one to show off some fussy cut larger prints!

I was actually wondering if rather than one block per month we should aim for three blocks within two months (or similar) because that would mean the 12 blocks would be finished in time to do some sashing and assembly before the end of the year? Or is the putting it together and quilting it the plan for next year?

Not that I've actually started yet, but I have more or less decided on the fabrics . . .

Kylie - I think thats an awesome idea - maybe after everyone is in the swing of things we could do more than 1 a month.

And the tumour is insane isn't it? Scary stuff. When they showed me that just before surgery I nearly puked.
Hard to believe that had been growing for years and we never knew about it.

My fabrics are all chosen due to DH making me organise my sewing room as its going to get re-wallpapered soon as we had a major leak in the last big storm (insurance claim thank goodness). I'm so glad he make me tackle it as I coudln't afford to go an buy some new fabrics and realised I had enough in the exact colours I was looking at doing it in here. Its currently having a pre-wash, should be able to iron tomorrow and may even fit in some cutting as well. I'm rather excited about this project :mrgreen: .

I'm kinda confused, I completly forgot to prewash the fabrics, so did that last night before cutting (PHEW).

But with doing different fabrics on each side, I'm confused as to know what length to cut each different peice.. its hurting my head :( Or is the easiest way to do it, is to cut to the 1.5" strips, then follow the tut on the website and cut to the right length when I get there?

That's what I did - cut a whole stack of 1.5" strips and then cut lengths from those - BUT I'm brand new to this too (and not very good) so don't go by my word ;)
