Modern Log Cabins

I have finished my Cut the Cake top which I'm not very thrilled about mainly because the layer cake was very repetitive with at least to and sometimes three repeats of the same fabric. Hopefully some lover of clay pink might like it. I liked the pattern and the sewing but might like to take a more considered path next time.

Judi and some attendees discussing the modern logs

Monday was the second and final Log Cabin workshop led by Judi Kirk and like the other fully booked with 20 sign ups though not all could make it. It was a very satisfying day for the participants with just the right level of difficulty, improvisation and not too difficult sewing. The original worksheet was drawn up by Heather Hasthorpe for the Guild's specialist Modern Quilt Group but Judi provided some much needed extra guidance and measurements as well as pointing out possible pitfalls. As ever, it was interesting to see people's different fabric choices.

Choosing fabric for something when you don't know how it will turn out is a challenge. I think yours turned out well. The technique seems to make sure the whole quilt is coordinated. nine-patches and log cabins are getting a new twist.
