Follow the Log Cabin Road
bird ornaments, block prints, and p.j.'s for my son's dolls to get ready for Christmas. We did some of the crafting with the children, but the best crafting was what we did with each other.
This visit, we pieced log cabin squares for pillows (or wall-hangings) in our respective houses. She even brought her sewing machine with her with the expectation that we would be at the dining room table. I made the two in the middle photo (she made 3-- maybe because she was only interrupted by one child as opposed to my two!).
We used this tutorial, but I'm not sure that either one of us got "wonky" enough. Our strips were cut slightly wider than the tutorial at 3 and 1/2 inches. Next block, I'm going to "let go" a little more.
