This block was so, so fun. Check off another I-always-wanted-to-make-this block. =]
Wonky log cabins are my favorite blocks to make. I managed to get one block to 12.5″ x 12.5″ but the other only made it to 11″ x 11″. I ran out of purple (and the basketball print, which I really liked) and didn’t have the right shades in my stash. For as much as I love purple, all I have is lilac or bright purple, which I found odd (and irritating). I hope you don’t mind adding the last round, Sorrel. I am sure Adam will love his quilt. =]

Here is my block for Dorrie. Here is my blog post about it. Trust me, the beer helped! I do really love how these blocks are turning out. I know I would have *never* tried this block on my own, but I am so glad I did it for you Dorrie! =]
A spiderweb block for Nichole. It was surprisingly easy to make – it looks so much more complicated than it is. There are a couple of amusing mistakes where the same fabric joins on two blocks (I was so careful to avoid that happening, but it did anyway). This will be lovely when it’s done. Enjoy!
Last night I was finally able to finish packing up my fabric for my blocks. I will be mailing them Monday! Yay!
I’m asking for each of you to make a scrappy spiderweb block (tutorial here: http://quiltville.com/spiderweb.shtml).
I am sending a precut center piece and strips that are 1.25″ to 2″ wide, so all you need to do is supply the paper and sew away. I should have sent more than enough fabric, but I would prefer if you sent the usable leftovers back. I am going to be making more of these blocks so it will be nice to have the precut scraps. If you desire to, feel free to use scraps from your own stash.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out!
I have received blocks from:
