I have meny unquiltet tops in a box. Still, I have started another quiltproject. My scrapbox of 1 1/4 inch strips is full. Can't get the lid on. Time for a new scrapproject. I have allways enjoyed making log cabin, so that is the block I picked.

By friday I had made 30 blocks. Layed out the quilt could look like this. But who knows, this block gives many possibillities. I have started making 30 more blocks.

I find i very relaxing to make log cabin blocks. Comfort and love in every log :-)
Have a wonderfull sunday.

What's going on

What is it with this cat? Squeezing lims and tail togheter on top off one of my projectboxes. Does he miss me working on some project in my sewingroom?
I do what ever I can to please my cat :-)

A long time ago I found an Australian magazine showing a scrap project I fell in love with. On monday we had a meeting makeing charity quilts and I wanted to start on this project. Than I could not find the magazine with this project. I just started out of memory. I'm going to make 16 blocks like this to make a lapquilt. Great way to use scraps.

Not long ago I ordred some books from Amazon.com.
This book have some great patterns using 2 1/2 inch strips. I just have to try some of those patterns. But when I don't know. I wish for more hours in a day. I did not help making the Quilters Watch :-)
Just a couple of weeks left to the Nordic Quiltfestival in Gotenburg, Sweeden.
Take care.
