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).

  6. This is a cool block. I may have to take a look at it. I have that magazine... I found the magazine a lot of fun with lots of different new blocks. Hum, maybe I should be doing some of these with you....
