    I need an easy pattern that looks hard

    I have a wedding quilt I need to get started and done by September 21, that want colors brown and teal, I couldn't fine teal so it's an light blue.
    I have a go cutter and I have the log cabin die I would like to use but I just don't understand how to place the fabric for the colors I need. I know I am not saying it right, I hope someone understands what I mean... thanks for your help...

    Take a look at Jenny Doan's newest MSQC youtube video of a quilt called Merry Go Round. It looks complicated but is very easy with her instructions. The quilt uses charm packages but you could cut your own squares and yardage. I couldn't believe how fast and simple the quilt units were to do.

    Disappearing 9 patch is easy, but looks hard.

    Teal fabrics are hard to find, but worth the search. You might keep looking. The light blue might be a good light color to use with the teal.

    There are so many ways to lay out the colors in a log cabin pattern. You may want to look for the varieties on a web search. I don't know how easy any one of them would be. The only log cabin I have made is using paper piecing and laying blues on one side and yellows on the other. Good luck and have fun. Forgot to mention that I have not finished this quilt yet, doing it as a QAYG and been working it - seldom - for about 5 yrs, lol. I have named it the never ending quilt.

    Hancocks of Paducah has some beautiful teal in their catalog.

    Thanks for posting this! I just watched it while I ate lunch & it looks so doable for me! I love it!

    I just watched Jenny Doan's Merry Go Round video yesterday and it is easy the way she does it, but looks complicated. I want to make one.

    Great information, Alien Quilter.

    Be careful with fabric.com, I've gotten decorator fabric instead of quilter's cotton. Have to read the description better.

    I find some of my fabric on http://www.equilter.com/ hope it's okay to post this! just type in teal in the search box and there it will be! Just a suggestion but if you are unsure how to use the cutter why not piece a Rail Fence using shades of brown and teal might be easier being you have a dead line and I sense a little anxiety - keep us posted and remember to breath!
