Yesterday afternoon and today I pieced thirty little log cabin blocks from strings, and sewed them into a baby quilt top. Those are some of my little umbrella girls in the center “chimneys”. I love to take that tangle of strings and bring order to them. It never seems to make much of a dent in the bins, but I remain optimistic. I also love to use the last bit of favorite fabrics of which I thought I had seen the last. There’s a little gray Mirror Ball Dot, some Michael Miller zoo print, as well as bits of silver and white Fairy Frost. Must remember to order more Fairy Frost.
I hope you’re playing with fabric today.
I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

WOW! I had no idea log cabin blocks were also known as string blocks. I am so glad there are days when I learn something new.

Well, I’m making wonky ones from strings, so I guess they are…

Oh they definitely are. And they are adorable.
