Another Rebuilt Log Cabin in the works
Would you like to join me? Now is a good time -- well, for me anyway! 8-)))
I'm using squares and strips at 1.5 inch cut. If you want to sew along with me, get your strips out (hopefully you have some scrap strips pre-cut!). I'm starting with a dull red in the center, then adding my lights next. My darks are in the green, sage, purple, blue combinations. There are 5 rounds of lights and darks. Assuming you use even amount of lights and darks, starting with the lights means you will end up with more DARK on the outside of the block. Of course, we cut them/trim them before they are sewn back together, (rebuilding), that will demonstrate a defininite zig zag look in each intersection. Confused? 8-))
You'll see when I actually MAKE the quilt and then post the photos here. I'm planning 6 x 8 blocks (48) and if I remember correctly, they trim to about 10.5 inches, then I will add borders of some kind.
