zigzag progress

 I have had so much fun making these log cabin variation blocks from Lori's quiltalong. I had quite the pile growing so it was time to start putting them together so I could decide how big to make this quilt.


I think a generous throw size is what I am aiming for.  Big enough to be cozy for a nice nap on the couch.  (not that that happens very often  :0)   I have 15 rows of 8 blocks sewn together.  I want to make it 3 blocks wider yet but I thought I would show you my progress.


I only have 9 more blocks to make.  I hope to get them together and attached with the others this weekend.  My guild is having a sew day and I hope to go for at least a few hours of it.  I have lots of the red polka dot fabric left to make a border. 

Happy Quilting!!

I love this log cabin set. This is going to be a nice cuddle, sleep on the couch quilt. Pretty colors, I think log cabin blocks are just plain old fun to make.

I absolutely LOVE it! Even if you don't take a nap under it you can stay warm while watching evening television.

Your blocks look wonderful. It is so fun to see this done in a big quilt. I love the movement and the pops of red.
have fun at the sew day!

Oh I LOVE this!! What a wonderful idea, to take a small quilt and just keep making it grow into one large enough to use---I want one too. ;D
