Mini Mania time

The months seem to fly by and this month is no exception, but I have enjoyed this months challenge.  My flickr friend Dee set the challenge this month,  and I have to say its been a bit easier than last months, but what a lot of choices we had.  I decided to look on line to see some different designs and this is where my dilemma began as I loved so many.   I think this was my favourite, but the challenge was to cut 1" strips and I couldn't make the pattern work unless one strip was 1.25".  Would they have sent the measuring police??  In the end I went for tradition log cabin, but not traditional shading.

Neat little pile
 Now for the design....

I liked them all, but the last one was my final choice. so lets get it together.

All sewn together
Bit of quilting

Tah Dah!

So another challenge bites the dust.....wonder what next month will bring.

I had a few strips left so thought I might have a go at this one, even though its not all 1" strips .... but I like it.

The green block looks a bit wonky....

Think I might be hooked on Log Cabin blocks so watch this space...


  1. Aren't they fabulous?:) So many options and all the strips don't have to be the same size so a great way to use up scraps.
    Love both os them....are you still saving them to put together into one quilt?

  2. Love both designs. My strips were different widths.

  3. Both look great. You are right, the dificult part was to decide on the layout... I asked my husbund and little one to choose!

  4. Love your spotty block. The quilting makes the layout really stand out.
    Look at you - two blocks done!
