Design Wall Monday

Our company is gone. Sniff, sniff…. I miss them already! Now, I am gearing up for Christmas again, a low key version this time as the gifts have all been distributed.

Have you seen Aunt Marti’s Quilt Block a Day? She just started a new round for winter. She is making one Log Cabin block a day. I decided to jump on this wagon since my own log cabin project has been stalled out for a long time. My blocks are 4″ finished and I am paper piecing them from Civil War Repro scraps.

Above are the two I have completed since the QAL started yesterday. I already have a pile of these done but it takes a lot of 4″ blocks to make even a small quilt.

If I keep up with one a day, I will have 90 more by the time spring officially rolls around. Not sure I want that many but I hope to keep up with this for a while anyway.

Linking up with Patchwork a Times for DWMonday.

    Ah, I love log cabin quilts … although I’ve never done one that small. I can’t wait to see yours finished.
