Fabric Friday

My Wonky Log Cabin Placemats needed a few more fabrics to round them out, as well as backing fabric so Levi and I headed out in the snow to The Workroom.  

From the top: Kona Espresso, Greenfield Hill in Cranberry, Betty Dear Orange Leaves, Greenfield Hill in Dogwood, Kona Burgandy.

Once again, I messed up my first Wonky Log Cabin block.  Can you guess how?

Yup, my third round of strips were just short of my desired 12 inches, so I had to add a fourth round. This led to several of the fourth round strips not making it all the way across the block when I cut the block to size.  I haven't decided if I'm going to use this block or rip back two rounds and try again.  What do you think? Rip or use?


  1. I think it's all kinds of awesome. I say use it!

  2. Hi Lisa!
