Wanted to share with you a great deal!!
The editor of Fons & Porter contacted me to review their new eBook. If you like log cabin quilts you can get a free copy of this "eBook" by heading over to my blog!
Well, I've started on my patriotic quilt for 2013.
I saw the Something New Sampler blog hop and decided it would be cool in the Northcott Oh Canada Quilts Of Valour line from 2012. 8 of the 9 blocks are techniques I've never done and one was dione differently so this could be interesting. All 9 blocks finish at 7 x 14.
Here is block 1.
And block 3. Block 2 will be hard for me so I'm waiting until I have completely uninterupted time (ha!)
OH W4M! That is gonna be beautiful!!
Thanks for the link! I love the log cabin block!!
The colors are absolutely gorgeous! The quilt will be wonderful! Can't wait to see it!!

And block 2 Folded Block. This was hard as the instructions did not seem to work for the size of background fabric. I had to play with it quite a bit.
I can't wait ta see how it comes out.
Here is another mini I'm workin' on.
Each square is 1".
I'm gonna put a tiny .25 red border then a 1.5" blue border.
W4Me ... looks like you're having a good quilty weekend! Learning new techniques are good ... think of all the ways you can use them now. I haven't tried the folded method you are using and wonder if it's like when I do the flanges? I was using the Oh Canada QOV red tonight for a PC block and was thinking of you. Wonder? will they have a 2013 addition to their line?
DublB ... is this a PC block? Love the colours ... of course, your trademark RW+B!
