Béa et Cécile Quilt-a-Long

J'éspère que tout le monde peut lire l'anglais,  parce que je trouve difficile d'écrire tout en français.

I'm taking part in Béa et Cécile log-cabin QAL in France. Now I can combine sewing and reading French. But I find it a bit difficult to write everything in French, so it's going to be English, as usual. 

We are supposed to sew two log-cabin blocks every week for eight weeks. I've thought about making a quilt with scrappy and wonky house blocks for a long time, and now was the right time to do it. If you study the blocks, you'll see that I've put different animals in the windows.




Block 1-4
















Block 5

Block 6

Block 7

Block 8






















Then I'll put roofs on the houses, just now I finished the two first blocks.

















I'm going to have some other blocks in my quilt, too. These are some of them, but I haven't decided yet how it's going to look like in the end. This quilt changes in my head every day, but I think I may call it a modern one, at least not a traditional quilt. Next month you'll find out how it's developing. My plan is to finish it in March.

If you go to Cécile's blog (traditional) or Béa's blog (modern), you can find out what others have come up with in January. So many different log-cabin quilts are beeing made, in totally different colourways and techniques.

  6. I do like the wonkyness of your log cabins and now they have roofs they looks so good. I find traditional log cabin blocks the hardest blocks to do so will try a little wonkiness myself
