Happy Thursday, everyone!
This week, we are working on block 7 called the “Curved Cabin” in the Mini Series sew-along hosted by Giucy Giuce and Alison Glass.
This block is comprised of 4 tiny sections, giving you the ability to create many different looks from one block depending on your fabric choices and fabric placement. Each tiny section is 2-inches by 2-inches (finished measurements).
I’m continuing my color scheme by using a Kona charm pack in Mermaid Shores with a batik background that reminds me of tiny beach pebbles.
The pieces in each section are tiny! I narrowed my final block assembly to these 3 options:
I think it’s so wonderful how this block can completely transform depending on my layout! I really liked options 1 and 2, but I ultimately went for option 1 because I do enjoy the center circle that emerged.
I think a quilt made just from this block would be a fun project in the future. I could make the blocks all the same, or maybe do an ombre effect.
Here’s a look at my blocks together:
We now have 7 out of the 8 blocks in the Mini Series completed. There is 1 bonus block available to the participants only, so I plan to make it next week along with the final block.
If you are participating in the SAL, I’d love to hear about it. Leave a comment and let me know your Instagram handle.
