For my block, I am requesting a red and aqua log cabin block, since aqua and red are two of my favorite combinations. Also, I am loving the low volume or script fabrics so I thought that would be perfect for the light side.
I have an illustration and color chart that Jennie made up for me. The block finishes up at 12″ square.
(1) 3″ x 3″
Aqua White or Low Volume
(1) 2″ x 3″ —
(1) 2″ x 4 1/2″ 2″ x 4 1/2″
(1) 2″ x 6″ 2″ x 6″
(1) 2″ x 7 1/2″ 2″ x 7 1/2″
(1) 2″ x 9″ 2″ x 9″
(1) 2″ x 10 1/2″ 2″ x 10 1/2″
— 2″ x 12″
It is really simple and quick to make. When I made my block I used mostly scraps so I didn’t measure the strips before cutting to length until cut after sewing them on. It really is a personal preference.
Here is a sample block I made so you can see what I am looking for. I don’t mind color in the low volume or text or print, even solid white is fine. I am excited to see this come together. (I may have sewn more than one block for fun, the rest are still in process, you can see from the photo!)
Thank you and have a great day!
