Log Cabin by Jennifer R.

When I threaded my machine tonight, it gave me a RUSH! I was SO happy to get to it! I really enjoyed putting this block together. I am wondering how many of you are using a 1/4 inch foot. I know that it probably has a different name. It really makes quilting so LESS intimidating. Through the years, as I've watched my mom put together quilts, I was FEARFUL. Fearful- of attemping to sew a 1/4 inch seam Over and Over again. HA! I am quite certain without this foot, I would sew in large zig zags.

Anywho, =) I loved this block. Thank you, Connie, for choosing it. I hope you like my color scheme!!!

It's lovely, Jennifer! What great colors. I love that the lights are light and the darks are so dark. Plus, I just love the fabrics you used. Nice job! And no, I don't have one of those foots (feet?) haha, yet. I've put tape on my machine and that helps, but a foot would be sooo nice!

I used Connie's 1/4 foot and it does make it easier. I have always used the tape, but it sometimes gets covered by my material and then I am doomed!
I like your log cabin, too.
