Design Wall Monday 01-13-14

011314   (1024x1024)I finished the rest of the log cabin blocks this weekend and I really like the results.  Now comes the decision for the setting triangles.  As you can see I am considering some little card tricks blocks.  These measure 4 1/2″ finished.

011314A (1024x713)Aren’t they cute?

Check out what everyone has been up to at Patchwork Times.

    Log cabin in a card trick setting–first I’ve seen it. Very effective! I also like the many fabrics, one color per block approach.

    One of the very first blocks I ever made was the Card Trick. Love your interpretation! And the little ones are as cute as can be!

    What a striking block! so much impact. The strips look like 1/4″, certainly a lot of work, but well worth it.

    • Marlene says:

      The strips are cut 1 1/2″, so they finish at 1″ and the blocks are 12″ finished. The cutting seemed to take longer than the actual sewing, but it is an enjoyable project. Thanks for stopping by.

    These blocks are amazing! I keep coming back to look at them. I have been stuck in log cabin mode for a while. What size are your strips?

    • Marlene says:

      The strips finish at 1″. The cutting took longer than the sewing because there was 3/8ths, 5/8ths and 7/8ths measurements to make the curve. Thank you for stopping by.

    Your log cabin blocks are so cool! I love the setting and the colors you used. Nicely done!! Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    I know I am probably dating myself, but your blocks remind me of Pac Man! LOL

    I love how the different black & white prints create depth for the background.

    Glad I stopped by!

    Very pretty! I like the circular look without sewing any circles. That’s a neat trick.

  8. Sue Daurio says:

    Oh how wonderful! Is there a pattern? I must make some of these. what a great spin on the card trick block!

    Wow! I love these blocks. They would be great to use for the color challenge this year. We are almost half finished with the month and I have done nothing on the color challenge! Thank for the inspiration.
