Playtime -

Today I was able to play with the backing - 

For my Quarter Log Cabin - 
Pattern -  © 2015 - by Liz Katsuro - 
You can get her FREE patterns - HERE
I cut all of the sections - 
And laid them out on my ironing board - 
Similar to the diagram - 

I decided to add some strips between the big chunks - 
To lengthen it a bit -
And all of the sections are not fully visible - 
So they may appear shorter/narrower than they really are -
Then - of course - I came up ONE strip SHORT - 
In the 3rd column - LOL -
So - 
Rather than cut up another strip from the extras I have on hand - 
I thought I could piece a section from some leftover "units" - 
It should look something like this - 

And I think that might look pretty cool -

But now - 
Looking at the photo - 
I might swap out the pieced section - 
For the top Gray one in the 2nd column - 
And then switch some of the other Yellow and Gray strips around -
Or not - LOL -
Don't know yet - 
It's a "Work in Progress" - 
So stay tuned - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

It looks great. You're going to have a reversible quilt by the time you're done. 😁

I see a lot of possibilities for playing with this.
(Example: the 3 strips in column one could become an uneven nine patch -or depending on sizes a 12 patch {3x4 patch})

But then you might need some extra fabric and I know you have such a small stash. Ha ha.

You never fail to keep us on our toes!
Unrelated — between you and Gene I’ve been inspired to try using my hands to do some simpler piercing. I bought two beautiful fabrics yesterday and we’ll see where it goes! 😂
