I went to quilt mini-group yesterday and we made pin cushions. Had to make two 4" Log Cabin blocks to get started and that turned into a hoot! There were four of us and just as many ways to sew up Log Cabin blocks it seems. Chari was finished in what seemed like 30 minutes including mistakes and I was still pressing round 1 and a half. Mavis was struggling with the Log Cabin construction and complaining the whole time. "This isn't an easy block! Whoever said Log Cabin was *easy*?" After two hours of sewing she had one block complete. I love the variety among quilters. And as Finn said recently - You can cut across the ball field or you can walk all the way around but in the end you still get there!
