What materials did you use? Cotton Medium Dots fabric by Riley Blake Designs: 1 jelly roll (2.5 inch strips) and 1 charm pack (5 inch square). I separated the pastel colors from the primary colors. I also used solid color jelly roll for the white strips.

What are you most proud of? instead of creating each block separately, I built all 6 blocks, 1 log at a time. for example, I added log "A" to the center block, by chain stitching together all 6 blocks. Then I added log "B" and chain stitched all 6 blocks. this allowed me to play with the colors by trading logs before sewing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? play around with placement of logs, and also with placing of blocks. have some fun with it, make it up as you go along.

Are you sharing the pattern?

The pattern is basically a standard log cabin block, except I used 2.5" strips of pre-cut fabric (jelly rolls). Read all my original comments (above) to see if that helps you. If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Love the idea of making all the blocks at once by chaining! I think I am going to enroll in this class now...
