I changed my mind and decided to post my 1st improv log cabin block. While I do not love it I do like parts of it. I have a clearer idea of what I will do for my next block. The 1st picture below was taken outside and is a bit wonky b/c the block is sitting on a snow drift.It is hard to see but along the left side I did some decorative stitching and the patch of aqua to the right of the teapot is gathered. I really need to learn to take better pictures!

It's snowing again. Big, fluffy flakes - the kind that make you want to go outside and try to catch a snowflake on your tongue.


  1. I really like this block. All the red makes the blue really pop. The texture is nice too. I may have to try that for some mini wall quilts.

  2. Is it the construction of the block that bothers you or the fabric combination? The decorative stitch is a nice touch, BTW. The only thing I can see is that it may need a little more aqua to balance out the red visually. But otherwise, I think it is a fine first block :)

  3. It turned out great! I am back to my planning self, but looks like you really enjoyed the process. Do you think you will do more?

  4. i think it's a great first block, sara. do you like it more now?
