Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Traditional, Classic, Funky
Cottons from my stash
What was your inspiration?
These were fun to do. I made the block "4-sided" instead of 5 because 5 sides to me is Crazy Patch. I wanted to go for more of a "drunken" log cabin.
What are you most proud of?
I'm getting better with "wonky". I need to throw the "rules" out the window more often!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Forget the "rules". Use wider strips (~3"). I used strips that were already cut from previous blocks which were narrower. Wider strips allow for more "wonky" cuts.
