    So I just decided to wing it and see what happens, here are the first few little blocks done. They are nowhere near the same size, I'm not sure what went wrong, but I think when I get them all finished I can square them up and make them almost even when I get ready to put them together.

    Love those colors! Reminds me of Valentine's Day or cotton candy! Watch your 1/4" seams. And press after each seam. That block is tougher than it looks! I'm working on log cabins too, but my colors are not near as neat as yours! Gonna be pretty! :D

    Thanks Dawn! I had originally picked this project out for me and Henry to do for Valentine's Day, but I think I bit off more than we could chew. Neither of us had done a log cabin before, and the instructions were too vague without me doing some research. So...it's a belated V Day project! :P

    Thanks Chele!! I can't wait to see the one you are working on! I did mind the 1/4" seams like you said and it was a miracle how close the blocks got, almost exactly the same width! I am still getting used to my new machine!

    Yay! You know that purple fabric we have? It would look really awesome either in a heart pattern or just regular log cabin! :P

    Thanks M! I hope they vary enough to meld together instead of looking like a pink garbled mess! :D
