Log Cabin Loonies
Are you following along with the crazy mini log cabin makers over at Julie's? These log cabins are made with 1" strips - cutting instructions here.
I had a pile of gold scraps that needed to become little log cabins. Aren't they pretty?
Some of these are leftover scraps from Angel Solstice, and the Superbowl mystery, and a few tiny pieces from Save the Bees.
But really I'm supposed to be working on sewing up my green scraps this month for the RSC. So I made a concerted effort to sew up some green scraps. Dark green is not my favourite ... I don't know why. I always seem to be forcing myself to add some dark green to quilting projects. I added in some plaids hoping that would help me like these blocks more, but nope I still don't like them.
However, when dark green is put beside some of my favourite colours, it magically improves!
Here they are on the design wall...the first 16 log cabin loony blocks sewn together in groups of 4 .
Wow I love this project! It's definitely one of the RSC projects that will carry over into 2019.

It's interesting how hard it is to sew with a color we don't really like. It's also interesting how that color improves when incorporated with colors we do like.
Love your little log cabins! What a fun project for your rainbow scrap challenge!
Really neat log cabins--My LCL runner is in my drawer waiting patiently for me to come up with borders--my own personal "bugaboo" hugs, julierose
Wonderful little log cabins, Kathy!
Another stellar RSC project!
BTW, the dark green looks grand to me. :)
It's so fun seeing all these tiny little log cabin blocks. It's tempting me more and more to join in!
I love log cabins and your gold ones are wonderful. I agree it is hard to sew with colors we don't like. I decided to follow mother nature and everything goes and really really do love my scrappy quilts best!
I love your blocks...super fun to make them part of a rainbow quilt!
These look great!
I find those little logs addictive no matter what the color!
Beautiful blocks. Amazingly, I've never made any log cabin blocks. I love yours. So that definitely has to go on the list as a RSC project for the future.
