OK, Kathy! I dare ya!! Make it a project for 2012?

Here is a quilt that I made from fabrics that I hand dyed! They are 1/2" logs done with no paper piecing or foundations or special rulers. I did it about 8 years ago, and still love it! It's a family joke that my husband's favorite color is "bright shiny objects" so the name of this quilt is ALVIN'S FAVORITE COLOR!

I may have to accept that dare! Your quilt is wonderful- I too love every color and yours has every color :D :D
Half inch logs?? Yikes!

I just re-read Gyleen's intro about cutting the strips-she mentions spending a few months cutting strips in front of the TV. Ha Ha! I guess that's about right. I've been cutting for 2 or 3 days and am about halfway to the 3 pounds of strips. AND, my pile of scraps is almost gone.

You and Alvin have a very happy Thanksgiving, you're lucky to have each other!

Beautiful quilt, Margo! I think it's my favorite color, too! I have a quilt top waiting quilting (so could be some time....) that is a log-cabin-like block in the same setting you used. Mine is caramel and jewel tone batiks. What a fun setting!

A word to the wise! If you do 1/2" log cabin strips without foundations, don't be surprised when you are merrily quilting away on your domestic machine stitching in the ditch with a walking foot if some of the blocks have an extra "log" or are missing the last one! OOPS!! :roll:

Alvin has never noticed! :lol:

Kathy, if you cut a 1 1/2" strip from every one of those 60 yards of hand dyed fabrics you would probably have enough to make a whole pineapple quilt, so you could still keep almost all of your 60 yards!

Margo, yet another wonderful quilt - but seriously, 1/2" logs :shock: without paper piecing or foundations :shock: Were you out of your mind at the time or something? Rita.

Sharp eyes, Margo! That was part of a "scrap" that had been pieced. I might do some more on purpose with shorter strips. It is kind of addictive, what fun to see how they turn out! It also would be fun to do one with more order to it. Like my hand dyed fabrics that are still waiting for me to use them? I must have 60 yards of fabric that I've dyed and not used.

I love your block Kathy - it's fun isn't it? Possibly addictive.

Here's my first pineapple block. I just cut lots of my scraps into 1.5 inch strips. So far I only have a little over 1 pound! This is going to get rid of my scraps and then some. Decided I had better made a sample block to see if this would work. It turned out great!
As you can see, mine will be a random block.

Way to go Pam and Rita.

Love the quilt and block. I received the book and ruler yesterday, excited to try it out.

I could watch this episode over and over and over. Gyleen seems to brighten up

the day. Very lovely lady. Getting ready for 20+ plus for Thanksgiving.

happy sewing

Well, duh! Downloading is so new to me that I didn't even think of it! So, now the "Wish Upon a Star" is in my quilt documents. And, yes, I can find it! And, I think three stars, top to bottom in Christmas colors would make a wonder Christmas panel. Or even a table runner!!! Thanks ladies!
