Default Don't ever think a piece is too small!

I'm having fun doing 6" blocks that I find on Quilters Cache. This one is "Logs in Logs" and is paper pieced! Was really fun to try it but I can't imagine making a full quilt with this block!
I always wanted to do a Log Cabin type of block but 6"??!! Bless all my batik scraps!

Karen, for me this is it! So many more 6" (my favorite) blocks to try! I suppose I could make more samplers, but as I am on a So Sec income only, I have a good time just going through my scraps like I did with the Splendid Sampler recently. Thanks for your comment!

If you were to do a couple of them a day you could complete it in a few months. Looks great.

Very pretty!! I am just finishing a king sized quilt made all of 6" blocks. I started it the end of December. PP wouldn't have been as bad as what I went through. I sure hope we see how your lovely block ends up in a project!! I love the log cabin patterns too!
