Log Cabin Update

I have finished a dozen more little log cabin blocks this week. 
12 little log cabin blocks finished this week
I did some organizing of my strips, making them into piles of 6 and pinning them so I can chop off a stack of pieces in the length I need for the next round in the blocks and that has sped up the process a bit. I have not been cutting the logs exactly to length as I go along but have sewed the pieces on and then cut off the excess from each block with shears before I finger press the piece toward the outside. This has worked fine as my blocks have come out the size they are supposed to and it saved me a lot of advance cutting which I find really tedious. I haven't decided yet what I am going to do with these blocks (or, therefor how many I need to make) but plan to try out different arrangements for each progress picture and see what appeals to me as a setting.

I am linking up this week with Log Cabin Loonies and Oh Scrap! I am going to try to do log cabin updates on Thursdays, but didn't get on track for that this week.


  1. Your blocks are looking fabulous! Lots of scrappy goodness. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  2. Your blocks are great. What a perfect way to use your scraps!

  3. Trying out a new setting idea for each progress picture is pure genius!!

    1. Thanks! I was rather pleased with myself for thinking of it.

  4. Great way to use up those pieces and make a lovely quilt!
