Hens, Chicks & Roosters Log Cabin

What's not to like about this subject matter? I continued working with my scraps from the previous post, creating more log cabin blocks. I've now run out of this fabric's particular motifs:

What to do with them...quilt for a bed? table-topper? apron? handbag? market bag? potholders? None of the blocks are the same size. I fussy-cut the motifs randomly rather than using a square template for each. What was I thinking?? They'll be an adventure to put together. Scrappy, scrappy.

I finished the bovine blocks from this same fabric:

You can see some sample lay-outs for them at this post: LOG CABIN COWS

Next up, pink pigs! They might demand pink and white, or pink and brown logs to surround them. What do you think?

I found this quilt that I had begun 2 years ago in my closet when I was packing for the retreat, 3 days at the beautiful Oregon coast:
It didn't look like this when I pulled it out of the closet, of course. This is how much I was able to get done!! It's still missing a few strips of white between the rows, but that's easy to take care of.

Here's a look at the blocks from the Sakura Park line by Moda fabrics:

I downloaded this quilt pattern, Noteworthy Labyrinth, by Karin Vail from Moda BakeShop. 

As a special treat, to show you what beautiful weather we had in January, here are some shots of the Pacific Ocean:

All I can say is: WOW!


I'm working on the log cabin of hens, chicks, and roosters (one of my favorite themes!) from my friend's scraps of SO LONG AGO:
