A Whole Lot of Log Cabins Being Built!

I had such a lovely morning today teaching my Log Cabin Workshop. This class really feels alive with so many ideas. These are the class samples I've been working on. This week we were mastering the basic technique of the log cabin (Do you build clockwise? anticlockwise? How do you remember where to start building from when you pick it up again after a break?). We talked lots about different layouts, playing with scale, how crucial colour is. I'm so lucky to have such fun students, open minded about trying something new. Their own log cabin quilts starting to take shape - lots of decisions about colour and style. My favourite way to spend a morning!
