WIP Wed. progress or diversion?


 Sometimes when I think too long on a problem quilt or a hard project I feel the need to just sew. I happen to have some fat quarters that I came across when straightening up around my cutting table (another diversion from hard project). 



I can't remember ever making a log cabin quilt before. I starting playing with the fat quarters and on such a small scale comes these little 4.5" blocks. 



 I like it so far. I have 36 little blocks. I am not sure if I will keep making them or stop there. There are lots of layout possibilities. Right now I am leaning towards a star shape. I don't know...this was just a diversion. I think I am ready to get back to the other projects now so this will sit on the back burner a bit. 

There is a group on FB from SewCanShe that is making things this week with mini log cabin blocks. So fun. (it might motivate me)???

For now off to work on what I was working on before I got distracted!! :)

  2. Those little distractions are beautiful! I haven't made any log cabin blocks. But they are tempting me! I would have a hard time putting them on a back burner. I'd call it progress.... What diversion? Huh?

  12. wow those are some tiny log cabins, but so cute! I do that too. I will think and think on a project, and then I get tired of worrying about it and just love to sit and sew something simple. Actually, that usually gets my mind going most of all!

    Thanks for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
