Log Cabin Loonies

Yay - I made some progress  on my scrappy Log Cabins

I started them and then drew a blank as to the way I should do the colors of the scraps, and if I would have enough, and it set me into a panic -I needed chocolate STAT....

after a teeny little bit of chocolate .. I figured it out.

Just DO IT and see what happens


Here is where I am:

There are 20 blocks I believe... or maybe not - but that is what I counted pre chocolate ;-)

On Wednesday over at Julie K Quilt blog she will host a link up to a lot of other quilters making the coolest Log Cabin quilts - and it is fun to go get inspired - so just do it  - ha ha ha

Throwback Thursday and catching up

 I might have taken a trip - and I might still be a little behind the curve - but you all understand right? 

I was cleaning out photos, and uploading new ones ( from my trip) and I found these on my phone:

and you know - I think I have enough strings and 9 patches to make another......

this was on my phone too
but now it looks way different
I made ( forced really) my boys to help me rearrange
I took just a little more space ( ha ha)

and I found this one - one of my favorite scrappy quilts. and funny story - it was on the rocker, and a boy was goofing around - when he opened his soda - it exploded all over.... and hit my quilt.  A lot of my quilt..... but guess what? It washed out just wonderfully and now we are snuggling again.

Alright  now back to downloading photos and prepping for next weeks Mystery MOSAIC Clue... hope you are following along and having fun!!

Clue #5
Grab your leftover strips cut from the last clue and

LIGHT 2 ½ inch strips:
Cut 24 : 2 ½ x 6 ½ inch pieces
Cut 24 : 2 ½ x 8 ½ inch pieces

Dark #2 ( Blue in my example)
Cut  24 :  2 ½ x 4 ½ inch pieces
Cut 24  : 2 ½ x 6 ½ inch pieces
Cut 24  : 2 ½  x 8 ½ inch pieces
Cut 24  : 2 ½ x 10 ½ inch pieces

Take your 4 1/2 inch piece from Clue #4 and we will add to it as so:

You will then create 10 ½ inch Quarter Log Cabins Sewing just like the diagram

You will have 24 of these blocks – they should measure 10 ½ x 10 ½ inches

 Now on to the next clue!

today is a travel day for me - so I will pray that the Pdf file gets uploaded to Craftsy first thing - but... if not - keep checking - it will be there when I am in wi-fi range ;-)

Mystery A8 MOSAIC Clue #4

Clue #4
Cutting Instructions:

Dark #1  ( Red in my Example) Cut 5 -  2 ½ inch Strips Width of Fabric (wof)
Light ( White in my example) Cut 11  - 2 ½ inch strips wof
Dark #2 ( Navy in my example) Cut 18 – 2 ½ inch strips wof

 Step 1:

*Take 2 of your light strips and cut 24 – 2 ½ inch Squares – set the rest aside – you will need it ;-)

Step 2:
*Take 2 of your Dark #1 ( RED) Strips and cut 24 – 2 ½ inch Squares

*Use the leftovers and remaining strips cut  24   - 2 ½ x 4 ½ inch pieces

Step 3:
Sew your 2 ½ inch Light square to your 2 ½ inch Dark #1 Square

I put my light on the left, and the dark on the right to stitch. The piece will measure 2 ½ x 4 ½ inches

 Step 4: Add  your 2 ½ in x 4 ½ inch dark #1 piece to the top

Clue #4 is now finished – this piece should measure 4 ½ x 4 ½ inches Square 

 Save the other strips you cut – they will be used in the next clue ;-)

Log Cabin Loonies.... I am giving in

Oh I am just giving in... ha ha!!

Julie over at JulieKQuilts  started a log Cabin Loonies project - and I have been watching, and seeing all the quilts that others are working on.... and dreaming....

and then I started a little bit of organizing. Just a little bit, I don't want to get carried away!!
and I found a bage of scraps that had been gifted to me

I sorted and pulled the colors

 and now this pile:

Is turning into this pile:

and if time goes my way - I will start some log cabin blocks for fall!

Didn't want you to think I was playing too much Hooky and goofing off in the mountains. ;-)

Happy October!!!
