I'm excited about these, my first log cabin quilt blocks ever. I made them yesterday at Daniela's house, for the Quilts for Quake Suvivors benefit auction. I think I finished six of them yesterday and am making more today. I think my quilt will need about twelve or sixteen total. Maybe I'll have some solid-colored sashing (maybe pale gray) in between all of the blocks. I'm not sure yet. There are lots of quilting bees planned (not just in Portland but in other locations around the country, too) — just click on the link above for more information, or get in touch with Susan (whose new book, Modern Log Cabin Quilting, is beautiful and serving as huge inspiration for me) or Daniela, the organizers. It's great of them to put this benefit together. I really enjoyed working on these blocks. I see a lot more log cabin quilting in my future.
Believe it or not, this is the way that natural light photographs in my studio because of the skylights. Isn't it weird (horrible)? It's nice in real life but in photos it actually looks flourescent. It is very dark out today, which probably isn't helping either.
