Little log cabin pincushions - Building Block Tuesday

After some technical difficulties this morning, my Internet is now working and I can post today's Building Blocks Tuesday!

I still haven't been making many blocks.  I've been rather busy with some small sewing items and lots and lots of cutting.  I despise the cutting stage of quilting, but I do love starting a project with all my stuff ready to go, so I keep cutting.  More on what another day.

I made a few cute little log cabin blocks with some scraps from my Swoon quilt.  These are rather tiny, only 3.25 inches unfinished.

What do I do with them?  I thought they would make cute log cabin pincushions of course!

I might have overstuffed them.  I think they are cute.  I used the same basic principal in construction as the Prettified Pincushion in the Patchwork, Please! by Ayumi Takahashi.  Her's are a little bigger though.

What blocks have you been working on?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading!

  2. Oh those are perfect! Working that small, you are right in line for working on Dear Jane blocks. :) I totally agree with the not liking the cutting out stage, but when it is a new project, that motivation gets me through it, and then the fun part. Looking forward to seeing it. Sparkle on Jen.

  3. Sweet blocks Jen, I am not a big fan of the cutting stage either!


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
