Adventures in Fabric Art

WIP Wednesday: Order Out of Chaos




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.

  1. 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.

  2. Oh they definitely are. And they are adorable.
