Another month, another two quilt blocks. I am LOVING this block of the month class! The only problem is that each month when we learn a new technique, I want to make a whole quilt just out of that type of block…and now I have several quilts floating around in my mind that I want to make! Not to mention all the beautiful quilts I’ve found on Pinterest that are on my to-do list.
So this month we learned two versions of the log cabin block: the modern log cabin and the wonky log cabin.
This modern log cabin block is one of my least favorite blocks that we’ve learned. I think it’s just boring. Although, I think the main reason I don’t like it is because of how much white space there is; I think if it was more colorful it would be better. Also, it’s supposed to be very improvisational and uneven, but it kind of bugs me and I wish I had made the squares more uniform.
Now this one I love! I had so much fun with the wonky log cabin! I adore all the color and it was just a really fun block to make because it didn’t require precision. This was also a good way to use up almost all of the scraps of fabric that I’ve been saving from the previous months’ blocks. I think this is just so so cute!
It’s hard to believe I’m already halfway through all my blocks (we only do 10 months of blocks then the last two months we learn how to bind and quilt).
I can’t wait for June to see what we learn next!
