Wonky log cabin (yellow grey black)

My very FIRST quilt / project - IN PROGRESS 1st block is ready :) Quilt # 1 (90x108) - WONKY LOG CABIN (12 inch?) using yellow, grey and black fabric. Block design done in Photoshop using scans of Quilter's Showcase Fabric. Fabric scans here are for rough estimate of how the colors will look together and are not 100% to scale. Take a class- check! Get fabric - check! Design - check! Start putting it together and freaking out - working on it :) LESSONS LEARNED, so far (this will be updated): --- it's not IF you will make a mistake, it's WHEN you will make a mistake. I had everything measured & checked and double checked and still... one of the pieces ended up being 1.5 inch shorter. After lots of swearing and cursing (it was sooo obvious that it was shorter, but not when I was cutting) - I just took a scrap of the same fabric and stitched it on the short piece. Can you see which one it is on 4th image? :) Thank goodness I only cut a few pieces, not all 35 of them. --- Consistently CENTERING those first few pieces IS challenging. I think I'll need to cut out a template from newspaper with a "window" in the middle for those first 5 pieces that I'm stitching together before adding it to the batting & backing. **************************************** THANK YOU to Marti Michell and her "Piece by Piece: Quilt-As-You-Go Techniques" class for giving me courage to actually get started on this project. I'd like to give credit to the creator of the template - I did find this particular template on graph paper, on Pinterest, that points to Amanda's website https://3and3quarters.net. The choice of colors and fabric are my own. **************************************** TIPS: -- if you want to do something similar (without using Photoshop) - take pics of fabrics you like, throw them together in the collage (there are many free online collage sites) so you only printing 1-2 pages, not 8-16 pages for each photo--- print in color mode on regular paper if you have a color printer at home --- voila! cut and piece together (without buying & cutting fabric) ****************************************
