version of the Medallion Sew-along!
The third part/round was to add my own version of
This sew-along is inspired after the
style of Gwen Marston.
She has a VERY free style of piecing that I really enjoy...
Whatever she comes up with is good.
The seams don't have to match.
The points in blocks can be cut off.
And that was my plan...
I thought I could do a freestyle version,
with block centers and 'logs' of different sizes...
and found out that: I. COULD. NOT.!!!
I even stitched up some free-style log cabin blocks
with random width logs and random sized centers.
And promptly un-stitched them. lol
Just couldn't do it.
finished sizes of my log cabin blocks:
there are 3.5, 5.5 and 9.5 inch blocks;
Then I got REALLY wild and put a couple of them on point(!),
and, I did purposely only put three borders of log cabins -
how's THAT for free-style?!
Though that last may change when I hear what the
next month's challenge is.
At this point, my quilt measures
about 35 inches by 40 inches
(I believe without going to measure it).
It has been fun to not have a pattern to follow,
but just the idea for the month's challenge.
And, I learned that I'm not so good at free-styling. :)
Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with for the month!!!
(I'll link up to those later.)
Happy beginning of August to all!
