Again, 6 inch finished blocks, I used the log Cabin trim tool to keep the narrow logs from getting too out of control. The ruler worked very well, I was surprised to learn.

Pinkalicious!!!Not sewn into rows yet.
More of Something from Nothing - I DID purchase an inner narrow border fabric and a border. It's a bit long - I had enough for an extra row, but might not include it. These are all 6 in. finished blocks and yes, I DID use that fancy-schancy Log Cabin Trim Ruler. Honestly, I didn't WANT to like it but in the end, the blocks are so neat and tidy, I have to admit the ruler was a help.

My blocks are together, as are a few rows. My goal this time was to learn how to "complete" each web before the border starts . No chopped off webs! I'll probably make a narrow border, then a wider one. Backgrounds are also scrappy. This started a few weeks ago, with a real in-person meeting with Karla Alexander (many quilt books!). Her pattern is called "Tango" - done in blues. I wish I had used blues, since I'd already had made a spider web with earth colors. Oh well! This is one of those "can't see the forest for the trees" syndromes - I just was so intent on the newer method, I totally forgot choices of colors. LOL
Again, here is how it goes together - not like you might expect. See the diagonal seam line across the block? 2 of them fit together to make the square block.
Here is my previous finished quilt - I like it but don't like how the webs kinda just stop where they meet the borders. Soooo, now I have two! Good grief.
