I started sewing blocks for another wonky log cabin quilt this week. I started with mostly fabric that I painted, then I applied gold foil to the orange that I'm using for the center blocks.
I cut the strips wider at one end and also sew some of them on at wonky angles, like above. Then I iron ...
... trim off the extra ...
... and save the scraps for possible use later. They're too colorful to throw away!
For some of the log cabin strips, I insert a narrow strip of another color for more interest. I hadn't planned to use any commercial fabric, but this print adds focus.
And sew it goes, around and around!
