It’s obvious now that I should have started the left row against the edge of the design wall but I didn’t think I was going to make this many blocks. Right now it would end up at 66″ x 99″ with one block left over. If I could talk myself into making 8 more blocks it could be 77″ x 99″. If you have never made a log cabin quilt you might not be aware that there are lots of layouts you can use. Here is an older post with several layouts I tried.
I took some of the pieces that I cut from the leftovers and made four 6″ blocks that I would lay out like this.
Then I made four more…….
and this is what they look like next to each other. I’m not sure if a pattern would show up eventually when there is such a variety of plaids and stripes. I could put sashing between the blocks.
