A while ago I made some log cabin blocks from leftover strips I'd purchased at a garage sale. There weren't enough LC blocks to make a decent sized wall hanging, so I decided to add plain blocks.
Instead of the usual LC-Plain-LC layout, I tried something different. It was fast, really easy and lots of fun! Here are some pics of my layout auditions:
In this next one, you can sort of see one of the original LC blocks in the upper left corner....
Weird, I don't have any pics of the finished one, yet; I went with the first setting style.
Try it, it's fun!
