That is correct...I am becoming a carpenter.
You will not find nails, wood, saw dust or a hammer in my work room.
you will find pins, scissors and many, many scraps of fabric.
I am building houses - from the scraps of previous made quilts. Oh, yes I may throw in a piece of new fabric from time to time. But only if it is a small piece that I probably would not use anyway.
Most house blocks make the strips run vertical but I am making these run horizontal. Since all the colors will be in shades of brown I wanted them to look like logs in a log house.
I have really enjoyed making these - oh, I am far from being through. I plan on making them until the scraps run out. The fun part is really no measuring - that is until near the very end where I size them to a 8 1/2 square before adding the sashing border.
After making the houses I am thinking about taking green (got lots of this in many shades) and making blocks with a pine tree on them (flying geese type pattern).
Obvious choice for this quilt name: Log Cabins in the Pines.
