I may be a little late to the party but I’ve made the first block in Sue Spargo’s Instastitch Log Cabin
I really like this concept and thinking about it reminded me of High School Art Class and playing with mixed media. So as a nod to that, I’ve used woolly bits, cotton prints, solids and denim fabrics. The first part was choosing the right mix – something I love doing!
then stitching it up
and finally finishing it with embroidery. I took Sue’s suggestions and interpreted them at will.
Yesterday I started on number 2, again playing with the fabrics first
then sewing them together and starting the embroidery.
Lots of fun! Are you participating? There are lots of different version to see on Instagram, all cottons, all woolly bits, mixed media like mine, but all looking fabulous.
