I decided I wanted to play around with tiny log cabin blocks the other day. I had so much fun I made five. Four became coasters -
I'm disappointed with the skipped stitches in my quilting, but I was using a size 9 needle and maybe it just wasn't up to the task. I later switched to a size 14 and didn't seem to have any more trouble.
I love the backs of these coasters too!
The fifth log cabin became an easy pincushion. I experimented with the triple stitch on my machine for the quilting on this one.
I just love these colors!
AND, I just have to share that I used basting spray for the first time ever on these little log cabins and I'm IN LOVE. Sooo nice to not mess with pin basting on such a tiny "quilt sandwich." I used 505 Basting Spray from my LQS, but I'd like to find something cheaper. The 505 spray was $13 - yikes! Not sure I'd be willing to use it on a larger quilt at that price.
I definitely see more tiny log cabins in my future . . . too much fun, and perfect for scraps!
