* one quilt month 3

Posted on September 26th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

Finally finished one of these on time! The idea this month was to use white + one of 4 colorways of scraps. I got yellows and oranges, which was nice because I added a couple of my own fabrics to the ones Hyena in Petticoats sent. It’s a simple log cabin, made simpler because I sewed all the print fabric into a long patchwork strip at the beginning and just used that for each of the “logs.” Since both ends of the strip are generally different, it allows some flexibility in picking the best coordinating corners, though it’s still slightly more unbalanced than if I’d planned it from scratch. But, I’ve realized that that’s part of the fun of patchwork, the spontaneity, and I am trying to stop sweating the details.

Oh, and it really is square; I’m just unable to take a good picture. :P

    I LOVE this block – I have such a huge soft spot for log cabins, and I love the extra fabrics you’ve added – it’s perfect!

    Please don’t sweat the details – I see perfection in imperfection, and am a paid up member of the Embracers of The Wonk – I love it!

    Thanks so much – I’ll be waiting by the postbox…..

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
