I have to admit, I've always been a bit biased against the poor old Log Cabin block. I don't know why. I've always been drawn to the more traditional designs of patchwork and quilting. So I'm not sure where the bias came from.
So now I find myself in the postion of making two Log Cabin quilts. Well, the blocks for them anyway.
I have a pretty good collection of pinks and that with grey is a pretty traditional combo. Below, on the left of the cutting board is the various strips cut out. The long strips on the right are the leftover pinks. I might have gotten a bit carried away with the cutting out! I didn't really calcuate the requirements, just kept cutting.
