Installment Two, Scrappy Rebuilt Log Cabin
OK, above is your block pressed, with messy edges. At this point I'm thinking wider logs might have been a better choice, but this is what I did, so I'll live with it.
Next (above), I trimmed this block to 10 1/2 inches. That was tight! But since my logs were narrow, if I trimmed to 10 inches, I would be up against the seam line when sewing the blocks together
Just look at them laid out. This was just one setting.
Below is what your corners may look like. (This is another project - not the same blocks, but you know they look like the same fabric! -- and, I took the photo against the bed quilt in the background - kinda hard to see where one project begins and ends.) There is NO rhyme or reason to how your corners will look. A little lumpy, yes - get over it and don't tell the Quilt Police. Those lumps get buried in the batting. And, it will definitely be machine quilted, with all those seams.
I posted 2 of these type quilts in September 2006, probably before I was connected to Bloglines, so you may not have seen 2 finished Rebuilt Log Cabins.
If you make one of these, or just make 4 blocks for a table runner, I would LOVE to see them. Remember, this is a great Stashbuster, not a quilt made by the rules!
