Little log cabin improv

Our French friends Cécile at Patchwork Inspirations and Bea at A Needle in a Haystack are having a Log Cabin QAL... with zero rules... hurray for no rules!  Just some gentle deadlines.

#QAL2017logcabin on Instagram.   (I am @cynthiananto there)...



I'm choosing to just have fun and be casual with this.  All scraps, old and new, gifted to me, or tossed into my scrap basket as I work on other quilts.




I'm trimming them to 6 inches (not 6 1/2) only because that's what works well with my rulers and I want small blocks.




It's a great way to warm up in the sewing room and not take things too seriously.... just mindlessly (mindfully?) sew along... press... trim... sew some more.... repeat... til there is enough volume to trim down the little six inch blocks...



 Lots of quilters are joining in and it's not too late - so much variety in log cabins!
