Log Cabin Lunacy


I find that if I quilt along with others in blog land I happen to finish more quilty goals than if I go it alone. Maybe it's the deadline of a linky party. (I like deadlines). Maybe it's because I like to see how others interpret a theme, or an idea, or use scraps. 

Julie is hosting Log Cabin Lunacy and I am joining the lunacy. 

I used my brown short scrap strings and just finished making four more 9 inch wonky log cabin blocks that will join the 9 I made in February when brown was the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month. 


My goal is to make 30 blocks and then make a donation quilt..

I like the prompt that joining in with others provides, even if I always seem to veer off track. I hadn't seen Log Cabin Lunacy, but I'm tempted...

Her putting 'lunacy' right in the title was entrapment in my case. How could I possibly resist that?
I love your wonky log cabins!

I really like your wonky log cabins, too, and I think something like this would be perfect for me right now! I certainly have plenty of strings!

Lunacy grabbed me too. It is a great excuse to start a new quilt. Thanks for sharing your blocks with Oh Scrap!

Liberated log cabins are my favorites to make -- I adore looking at the vintage LC quilts with those tiny, tiny logs but making one like that is not for me. I have lots of neutral strings -- need to see what is out there in the darker string arena. (and I like the camaraderie of the link groups - especially the ones that encourage individual interpretations on a theme).
