Starting January with a Bang!

Hi y'all!  It's been so long but I finally feel like I'm getting things done again!  Over the holiday weekend, I got the last three blocks done for my curved log cabin quilt.  First the brown one...

Then the cream colored one.  It's a bit blurry, please excuse...

And finally the lime green one...

That finished up the blocks for the RSC15 curved log cabins.  I have them joined together now and just need to add borders.  Maybe I'll have it done by the weekend.

Also, I've joined in on the 365 Block Challenge for 2016.  It's one block a day for the year.  She started with some very easy blocks.  Here they are so far...

I'm doing purples as you can see.  The second block in the top row was a bonus block.  These measure 3-1/2".  I love it so far.  It'll be gorgeous.  Here's the finished layout...

It would be very easy to catch up if you want to play along!  Glad to be back here and will share more this week!

Linking up today with Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story, Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday, and Sew Cute Tuesday at Blossom Heart Quilts.


  1. Oh my goodness, I was just looking at the curved log cabin blocks in my closet! I did 4 blocks last year and I want to start them up again. Yours are so pretty - I'll look forward to seeing your finish.
    Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

  2. Well hello girl! There you go again making big plans! That quilt you got yourself into will be gorgeous! It reminds me of a Dear Jane so I know how much work that will be. Good luck with all your quilty endeavors.

  3. Thanks so much for posting your 365 Challenge blocks early. I've been having a very hard time choosing fabric for that, while sticking with another goal: use the stash. I see where you deviated a bit from her dark dark versus medium dark, etc., yet your blocks have great contrast and coordination at the same time. Now my stash will work. Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. Wish you a very happy new year, Cathy.
    Love your curved log cabins. And Congratulations on the teaching gig. That is definitely my ambition - someday.

  5. You are starting off with a bang. Those cute little 3.5 inch blocks sure would use up A LOT of tiny scraps. If only I didn't have SO MANY projects going on. Love your colors!

  6. 365 blocks sure is a challenge! But what a beauty you'll have at the finish. Stunning!

  7. Your curved log cabin blocks look great. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. The 365 quilt is going to be spectacular based on your start. Enjoy the journey with that one.
