Curved Log Cabin - RSC15

Hi my friends! And thanks for hanging in there.  I'm starting to feel better.  I'm not there yet, but I'm better.  This winter has been terrible on my allergies and then you throw the flue into the mix and I'm down for the count.  I've slowly started sewing again.  The last few days, I whipped up the curved log cabin blocks for this month's color in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, RSC15.  We're working with yellow this month.

I really love the way this quilt is coming out so far...

The color play is gorgeous.  Each log cabin finishes at 11 inches so the large squares are right at 22 inches.  

I am missing my machine time so hopefully I'll be able to make some progress on my elephants tonight.  Hope yall are having a great week!!!

Your log cabin blocks look great! I love the contrast of the warm yellow and cool blue in your current block.

Your blocks are beautiful and I love this idea for RSC sewing since a lot of my scraps are long strings. Maybe next year!

I love your rainbow challenge blocks. That is going to be one cheerful and lovely quilt when you get it done!

Sorry you have been sick. It is my turn now and it sure does slow you down. Who has time for that?

I like how you are using the same background color to pull the blocks together - they are looking great!

Love that yellow log cabin! That fabric with the red and blue swirls on it (in the top left log cabin) is great. Glad you're feeling better!

What a fantastic RCS project. Love it!

I love the colors! It will be so fun to see it all come together with all the different colors. I love scrap quilts--and really like how you've kept the background the same so as to give it some sort of continuity. Hope you feel better soon!

They are so bright and happy looking! Hope you feel better soon!

I love yellow and although I don't have much of it at all in my stash, I am going to see what I can come up with for the challenge this month.
I'm thinking of giving my first try at crazy quilting.

I adore your yellows and blues in that block! (And the pop of red in the center goes perfectly.)

The aqua background makes a nice change from a neutral background

My mom made a curved log cabin quilt for my sister which I quilted. It is such a fun design. I love how bright and cheerful yours is.

okay- I've been seeing these curved log cabins around and I have to know the measurements of the center square and strings. I love the curved look!

Those look so good together! I didn't realize you were doing aqua for all of them. What a great idea! Hope you are feeling normal again - I'm behind on reading.

Jen said...

Oooh these really catch my eye, love the color combinations you're using!

I'm slowly getting around to checking out all the scrapy links for Scraptastic Tuesday. I love the round effect with log cabins, and your look lovely.
