    Smile Shadows and Sunshine and Americana miniatures

    Next month our local Hospital Auxiliary is having its annual quilt auction. These are my donation quilts. The log cabin is made with 3/4" logs randomly selected from a scrap bin. General idea is to reduce the "stash" in the 3/4" bin. Americana Hole in the Barn Door I actually had to cut pieces for the blocks. Boy that was hard to do as I usually use what's in my 3/4" bin for my little tiny quilts. Name:  023.JPG

    Thanks everyone. Honchey gee you must think of me quite often! Sometimes I find it easier to sew an accurate small log cabin block like these than to piece a simple 12 " quilt block! Go figure.
    Once you start using small pieces--say 1 1/2" wide you think to yourself that you can use 1 inch pieces and sooner or later you are working with even smaller pieces!

    I'm planning on making some more log cabin blocks now that I have this one all finished. I didn't make a dent in my little scrap bin
