Quarter Log Cabin Mini Quilt

Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed with all that needs to be done?

Lately, I have been trying to finish projects for link up parties; participate in the New Blogger’s Blog Hop; prepare for our upcoming local Craft & Quilt Fair; have worked casually as a relief Teacher Assistant; and have been super busy with my usual home/school/sport life with my husband and three children.

Please, don’t get me wrong. I made the choice to link up to these finish parties and love the incentive they give me; I am extremely grateful for the support and opportunity to meet other new bloggers/quilters from all over the world in the New Bloggers Blog Hop; I am thrilled to be involved for the first time in this year’s Craft & Quilt Fair; I enjoy my occasional bit of “paid” work; and I am very blessed to have my wonderful family life.

Notice those words above that are highlighted in bold text?                                    I’m doing ok…I just need to learn how to breathe!! 

ANYWAY… 

Whenever I get hung up on all my “have to’s”, guess what I do?

I start a new fun project that is purely for my own enjoyment! Crazy, huh? 😉

Last month, Yvonne, aka Quilting Jetgirl, posted a tutorial for a Quarter Log Cabin Mini Quilt.

This is a really enjoyable tutorial which uses a lot of chain piecing, a technique that I love. After cutting up all of my strips, I was able to work on this project whenever I felt like it – usually a border at a time or whatever time I could spare!

I’ve been playing around with different arrangements of these blocks

Personally, for me, it’s a choice between 4 and 5.

What do you think?

  2. Hi Deb. Heather likes 2,4 and 5, but my choice is for the striking zig-zag order of 4.
    Whatever combination you decide on, we are sure it will look great. HnA in Munich.
