    I cut strips wof, then strip sew the blocks, one after the other onto the strip. I used Eleanor Burns' technique and it sure makes the blocks go quickly!

    Thanks Karen. The more I do the more I love this quilt!

    No new rulers, just a 6" X 24" and I put a strip of blue painters tape at the 1 1/2" mark the full length of the ruler so I can just sort of drop it into place to make my cuts. It goes much quicker and easier that way!

    I saw the one that barnbum did on TQB and fell in love with it! Hers was done pretty much in bright pastels and the effect was stunning. If you search for floral log cabin on this board you'll come up with her posts. Her work is exceptional, and by no means have I mastered her patience in matching the florals, but I'm happy with how mine is turning out and will do some more of these, for sure!

    I also watched the Eleanor Burns video here: http://quiltinaday.com/theater/25th/2501.html and got lots of good tips on making log cabin blocks. She's quite the character!

    Your quilt is stunning - I'm thinking more and more that the next quilt I make for the Family Reunion in July will be a log cabin, done with black/white fabric, which my family has already sent. I keep coming back to it, so I think I should make one - plus I haven't made one for a reunion yet.

I'm actually looking forward to doing one of these in pastel, maybe yellows, reds & oranges, maybe peaches and blues, maybe??? Yeah, ummm...I think I"m hooked! AND already have lots of extra pieces already cut, leftover ends from the strips, so can see a LOT more lob cabins in my quilting future.

    Anyway, here's where I'm at as of today!

    So very pretty. The log cabin is a favourite block. I plan on making a log cabin quilt in 2013. Yours is inspirational.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    It's going to be so pretty. I love the one I made. I'm collecting fabrics with a black background right now to make another. I found purple flowers, green stems and a tad of white and yellow in several different prints to use. Then for the other side, I'm collecting greenery on black backgrounds. I think it will be really pretty. Going to try a block to see how it looks soon. I absolutely fell in love with Karla's!
