The Sistine Quilt Saga or 85 Blocks Done!

 

BALL

I now have 85 Wonky (and I do mean WONKY) Log Cabin blocks made.

The next thing I must do is trim them all to size with my handy dandy 12 and 1/2 inch block template.

I got a pinking blade for my rotary cutter to keep fraying edges to a minimum

As you can see, I have not bothered to limit  the color palette

I just tried to have fun with every block I made.

  Boy these quilts take a long time!  Will I ever finish?  But I really am enjoying the process.And I feel honored to be using the sewing machines and tools of my Mother and Mother-in-Law   My plan is to make two twin-sized quilts, each 6 blocks wide and 8 blocks tall or  72 by 96 inches.

In the meantime, if anyone has any tips for a newbie quilter like me, leave a comment.I will keep you posted.
