The log cabin blocks have grown tremendously over the weekend! That design wall is 8ft tall! I wish the photos could have been better, we have been having rainy days and not great light. What started out as an idea now has a vision and purpose! This is the exciting part for me! When things come together and it looks even better than what you had imagined. Utter JOY! I love all of the different colors and how they work together! All of the pieces for this quilt are shirts from the Goodwill blue bins ( with the exception of one piece of fabric that I just happened to like the color). This is mostly 100% cotton since it is so much easier to work with during cutting and sewing. There is some linen but not much.
While I was filling a bobbin, this spool ran out! GASP! It was an emergency moment since the hands down best piecing thread is 2600. I keep giving away my spools to friends (and sometimes strangers) to share the LOVE of 2600 so this was my last one. This spool has last well over a year. It was used almost continueslyfor the full year unless I needed a 40wt or black thread.
In a panic, I looked through all the threads I have ( there are quite a few) and found this one! It is a wonderful new discovery and very close to the 2600 but just a tad darker, not too much but perfect for piecing! I was overjoyed for sure.
Not sure if anyone wants or needs a tutorial for how to make this but if you want, I can whip up a tutorial as soon as I have completed this quilt :o) I was taking notes while sewing, I guess that is the start of a plan. Maybe I can change my ways.
