Picture of the Day #47 is the Log Cabin Quilt Block… I was going to start.
I’ve had this on my dining room table for over a week and I’m stuck!
I knew I was going to struggle with not planning each and every block … but … I’m having a hard time seeing that the end result will look the way I want it to look!
I think my problem is … there isn’t enough variety in the patterns of fabric. After comparing it to the first quilt I made … I have fewer choices … which forces me to use the same colors and patterns on every single block.
Unfortunately this is how I learn … by trial and error!
I’ve already cut all my fabric ….. grrrr …. so, I’m waiting for a light bulb moment on how I can change it.
One idea I may try is to ditch the Vanilla 5″ charm in the middle and use a Charm Pack of the same fabric … and ditch the Vanilla/cream sashing. Or I could buy a chocolate/brown charm pack and use it in the middle.
Sounds like a lot of thinking …. so maybe I’ll wait on this fabric. I do really like the fabric …. but there’s no rush on this one since it was just going to be another test quilt 🙂
Have a good night!
p.s I have my next weigh in tomorrow …. wish me luck! I haven’t cheated on my diet, but …. I always fear the scale!!!
