Saturday Sampler #4

My goodness how fast a week goes by!
It's time to post my 4th Saturday Sampler block already! Click here to read about this 2010 quilt project.
This week I decided to attempt another block from my Quiltmaker magazine.  (Don't forget to sign up for their contest if you have a copy of the 100 blocks magazine - click here.)
I picked a paper pieced block this week and decided to trace the block pattern on freezer paper. I felt like Alice in Wonderland  - my hands were too small or the block was too big! Something felt out of proportion, because I have recently been working on tiny 1" and 2" blocks and these blocks are 6 1/2", which felt enormous to me!
This week's block is called "Swedish Log Cabin" and the pattern is by Lorraine Olsen (on page 24 of the magazine).


  1. 1" and 2" blocks!!!You are AWEsome.I can't figure out how you do it....I have enough trouble with a 10" block coming out even and the right size...I love your colours for the saturday sampler.I was going to start it but I have too many others to finish already.

  2. Nice block...I like this challenge of yours.

  3. Neat block~ I love your fabrics! :-) Happy stitchin'!
