Not my tissue covers....
Although they are a quick and easy make!
I've long admired the quilts made by Linda at KokaQuilts
Check out the beautiful quilts she makes....
And when I saw her Log Cabin quilt, I knew I had to make one too.
|I've lifted this directly from her website. I know she won't mind!|
There's also a sew-along happening on Instagram
and while I
considered joining in, I could not justify paying over
$20 for the pattern that was required to join in...
I mean, it's a log cabin block for goodness sake!
|This became a test block- the yellow fabric is different shades!|
Initially, I was hoping to use my scraps but after getting
frustrated looking for suitably sized fabric, I've now
resorted to stash.
|In fact I unpicked another block too...|
You can tell from this photo (above)the effect I am
I decided I needed more of a plan after all the random
piecing and piles of messy fabric...
creating my own cutting plan.
Laying all the prepared pieces on my newly covered
design board made for an efficient piecing process.
I have my solids sorted but I definitely need to
supplement them with a purchase of some
blue and greens, and maybe some pretty strong florals!
Oh, I've decided to call it Carisbrook Cabin and hope to
get photos here....

when it is finished!
The jail is probably not as cosy as a cabin, but this is as close as it gets!
There aren't a lot of log cabins in
