Log Cabin Baby Blocks 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10

Log Cabin Baby Blocks 6

I think I would quilt more diamond Log Cabin blocks around the coloured pieced diamonds.

My favourite is the subdued one above. Maybe because I am working with those colours at the moment. Don’t get excited, I am making clothes.

Have to admit to getting a bit excited yesterday when I made 42 buttonholes. I have owned my Bernie for over ten years and had made just one buttonhole that I can remember.

Down side of being the master (mistress?) of buttonholes, I now have to sew on a few buttons! Even button collectors have to use some of their buttons sometimes!

I need a sign for my sewing room … saying “I would rather be Quilting”!

At least the dressmaking fabrics will not be taking up much space in there for a while.

  1. 42 buttonholes?! What are you making?


    • Laura,

      Seven shirts! Thankfully I don’t need the buttons on all of them in the immediate future, but will try to get it done so I can stash some of them at the back of the wardrobe until next winter.

    I love the designs too. I keep trying to interpret how they would look like in scrappy colours. As long as the lights and darks were distinct enough? Speaking of buttons……not many sleeps to our Retreat!


    • Marie,

      Pretty much any quilt design can be made in scraps … providing you get the contrast right. I think the main trick is to avoid too many busy prints. The ones with muted prints are easier to classify as light or dark, or pink or blue.

      Speaking of buttons … got 30 of them stitched on yesterday, one shirt to go before I have to go shopping for buttons to match the last one! I will have to buy an extra one for the button collection too. I haven’t started packing, but have started retrieving items from storage places and putting them in obvious places so I don’t forget them.
