    I wanted to make a quilt for the lady that I have been caring for, she asked for a log cabin in autumn colours, thanks to my fabric angels on here, charity shop finds and ebay I have found around 80/100 different fabrics to make a scrappy uneven log cabin. I will probably do an appliqued vine in the neutral sections, laying out in the barn raising design.

    After my disaste r with the 'Foundation by the yard' I searched on ebay and found a roll of 30cm x 25m light non-iron vilene, got it for 6.50 inc. P&P!!which I will now use to foundation piece each block (just means I have to trace the pattern out 48 times!!) but at least it saves me hours of ripping out paper!!

    The block is very pretty. I use non-iron vilene for all my foundation piecing and have even hand quilted quilts foundation pieced this way.

    I think this will work beautifully, it is firm but very light, much more than if the 'Foundation by the Yard' had been printed correctly, it was much heavier and would have added a lot of bulk to the quilt
