Design Wall Monday - Log Cabin Blocks



It has continued to be very cold here this week. This was in the local newspaper last Monday.... minus 34 degrees! We are keeping warm by quilting. Well, maybe that's not what everyone is doing, but that is what I am doing!

I have been sewing my blue and yellow log cabin blocks and have the first fews rows made.  

I decided on the blue fabric for the setting triangles (thanks for all the suggestions and ideas on Monday's post). I used the chart on Bonnie Hunter's blog to determine the size of the setting triangles - click here to read her lesson on how to calculate the measurements.
Hope you are keeping warm where you are!
Hop over to Patchwork Times to see more design wall posts.

  1. I was just complaining to My Guy that I really didn't want to go to work because of the cold temps outside, I guess I should be happy that we are just a few degrees below freezing, not -34!

    The Log Cabin Quilt is turning out beautifully.

  2. With wind chills we are -13 degrees. Not fun at all. I love the blue and yellow on your log cabin quilt. The colors go together so well.

  4. I don't think I want to go see what -34C translates to in Fahrenheit! Yikes, that's cold! We've had some cold weather, but it pales in comparison (of course, we're much further south).

    As a log cabin aficionado, I love your blue and yellow log cabin. I've made several log cabin quilts, but I've never done one on point ... maybe the next one?

  5. Beautiful choice. It is looking lovely with the blue. That is extremely chilly... hope some warmer weather moves in soon for you.

  6. love the logs! -34 is too much for me - I do not think we have ever gotten below 0 in my area of Arkansas while we have lived here - close but not below

  10. Compared to that, it's positively balmy here at 24 degrees! We had some snow on Saturday, but warm temps yesterday melted all the streets and sidewalks. Much sewing happening here. Your quilt is going to be so sunny and happy and awesome!

  11. Brrrr! Good excuse to stay in and sew!
    What a lovely quilt this will be. Has the feel of sunlight glinting on the waves as the sun nears the horizon. Very peaceful.

  12. In that cold, I'd be staying cuddled up in a quilt! You made the most of it getting to your stitching. Stitchery and patchwork quilt I saw in your previous post looks fun. That Vintage Machine made me Drool...and Gasp- Is it yours?
