Last January, I did a workshop where I learned to make this beautiful quilt. For more information, please see the following website: http://elaineadairpieces.blogspot.com/
It starts with a traditional log cabin block with 5 rounds of 1 1/2 inch pieces. Just when you think you are finished...you CUT THEM UP! To be honest, I loved the look of the standard log cabin blocks. I had never made one before. However, I paid for the class, and I was determined to make the finished project. I am glad I did! The more blocks I got finished and the bigger the quilt grew on my design wall, the more I liked it. (See pictures on my blog for a partially finished look).
This quilt reminds me that sometimes life is not what you might expect, but it is still beautiful. The straight, standard log cabin blocks are nice...if not a little boring. BUT- take the plunge to cut them up and do something a little different and WOW! Live life outside the box, and while you may end up a bit "wonky" you will NOT be bored!
