The Weekend.

Did y'all have a lovely weekend? I know I did!

Some time ago (maybe last year sometime???) I won a GC to Blossom Heart Quilts' fabric shop. I picked up some really really cute prints, but my favorite was definitely this alphabet panel. And did you see that Alyce from BHQ is hosting this year's Sweet Pouch Swap? I signed up--did you?

Add in some delicious whites, gray and whites, a touch of black and whites, and you get:

Scrappy log cabins! Try though I might, I really can't get away from log cabins! However, this batch features logs of all sorts of sizes, so none of the blocks are the same size. I'll do another round, this time with super bright fun logs, then see to putting them all together in some semblance of order. I'm trying not to panic about the assembly, as this was an intentional stretching exercise to force me to do something new, but yikes! It's still a little scary!

I hope to finish this bad boy by winter time. I have a car quilt for my oldest kidlet, but Lito needs one too. This will give me lots of time to freak out when I need to put all of these 26 blocks together. Eek!

How was your weekend?


  1. What a cute alphabet panel. There's something so timeless about log cabins. Plus they are so fun and fast to put together. No wonder everyone loves them...I never get tired of seeing log cabin quilts, especially the wonkier less structured versions.

  2. That is an awesome panel. I kind of want to go and buy one myself, just to mkae little log cabins too. But I will resist!!! I do not need another WIP (I think my husband will kill me :-])
    I think this will be beautiful when it's all done. (not that it's not already beautiful... you know what I mean! lol)
    E xx

  3. I love the panel! I also especially love that houndstooth - I really like it in with the other prints. I'm excited to see how this turns out... stretching yourself is always scary, especially if you're using a fabric that you love.

    1. Next to polka dots, I think houndstooth is my total fave. I can't get enough of it! I really hope this quilt turns out! But if was a learning opportunity??? :)

  4. Love the alphabet panel and the choice of the grays! Nice.

    1. Thank you! I'm so excited to see this one done! :)

  5. SO cute!!! I adore that panel and those log cabins are adorable with the grays!


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
