Log Court 71

Middle of the week again … not too sure what happened during the last week … perhaps somebody just scribbled it off the calendar.

Log Court 72

Love the design above!

Log Court 73

These designs would be OK as small quilts, or large quilts, depending how wide you cut the strips. Start with 1.5 inch strips, 9 inch blocks, 45 inch top plus borders.

Start with 2.5 inch strips, 18 inch blocks, 90 inch top plus borders.

Log Cabin is not just versatile in colour choices, and how the colours are used … a bit of maths and you can make blocks in many different sizes. You can also change the number of blocks, and the number of strips added to each block.

A Log Cabin to fit everybody.

    Love the extra reading post! She is so right! I have had the privilege to mentor, and if I was in a position where I could, I would do it again.

    • Laura,

      I would love to mentor on a one to one basis … love teaching any crafty skills to all ages, but have always done it for groups, either as paid tutor or volunteer school ‘Mum’ … sometimes the grownup teacher learns more than the students of any age!

    Food for thought that extra reading piece. My daughter in law has taken to quilting, so I hope her interest does not fade. I have to leave my material stash to somebody! Love today’s selection.

    It is so wonderful to teach children and see the pride in their faces knowing they have made something themselves. I taught 4-H sewing for many years and loved it. It is sad that some of the big shops and magazines are closing/shutting down but we can still love our craft and continue to share it.

    • Cindy,

      What I found most rewarding in the classroom was showing kids how to use a tool, then watching them use it with confidence, and work out more things to do with it. With younger children it was simply showing them different ways to use a pencil … to draw sharp lines, and to colour in using the side of the lead.

      When I spent so much time in the classroom it was fashionable to let students work it all out for themselves, but the confidence they gained by teaching them what a tool was for made it worth my time to break the accepted rules of the time. I even told one boy he was allowed to use an eraser if he didn’t like a line he had drawn, and I couldn’t believe the results he produced in the next twenty minutes.
