Spinning Log Cabin...

A "finish" last Sunday the spinning log cabin block from the quilt group workshop in August...
I am so not in any kind of like with the blah colour combo (the fabrics/colours chosen by the tutor - brown is hardly a colour to pop against a beige background in my view but what would I know!) but it was about the technique so I sucked it up.

Done now except for removing the paper and giving it a good press which will no doubt be an improvement....and no...there aren't any more of this block lurking in my future...done one now, moving on...there may be something I need to re-make next year which can use up an orphan block so if that comes to pass then I might use the block on that.

OK, a new weekend...the sun is actually shining and the sky is blue not grey...hope the sun is shining in your world...

Happy Stitching...

Love the block, maybe teach me how to do it one day soon.

It's a great technique and makes a really effective looking block :) I think the colour issues for me stem from the block having both warm and cold colours at once ;) I'm sure the block will make itself very useful at some stage for something :)

So glad you got to finish the block though. Maybe you could use it in a new cutting board / ironing mat project workshop next year.....
It does look good though even if they are not your colours.

Are you sure you don't want a quilt of these blocks?
