I always like to have a machine ready to go with mindless sewing. The project needs to be one that requires zero cognitive ability. It's the kind of sewing that you can do at the end of a long day when you are exhausted but want to sew. You can just sit down at the machine and start putting pieces under the needle - no cutting to do, no matching required, no decisions to make. Just sewing.
My mindless project is sewing these log cabin blocks on my Sweet Baby Jayne. Each block has twenty 1" logs to attach. It is relaxing and easy sewing.
And sometimes boring.
And that can be a good thing sometimes!
I had to buy more of the darker blue fabrics, so that has proven to be somewhat of a treasure hunt.
But fabric was finally found that is "close enough" (thanks to Deanna and Barb) and I could proceed with sewing the 100+ blocks.
I have finished sewing 28 blocks and couldn't wait to put them on the design wall.
Here are some possible design ideas...
What do you think?
Do you have a favorite log cabin layout?
