Not too pretty at this point

All the log cabin blocks are pieced and up on the design wall and I see from the photo that I need move around a couple blocks. It may not look like much at this point but I have faith that I'll like the finished quilt.

In case you missed an earlier post - these strips and strings were pulled from my bins and are all different widths. As you can see they aren't color coordinated either so if you don't like scrappy quilts to begin with, this one probably looks ugly to you. Since I tend to get bored fairly easily, it's nice to do a different block and STILL be using my leftover strips and strings!

I love the scrapiness of your blocks, and the colors. You inspire me to get my scraps together and use them!

Oh I love it! The few bright pinks and that one orange strip gives it a bit of zing!

I think it's great! The contrast is very good and the whole is wonderful. Makes me want to run upstairs and start one.

Mary you've never made anything that looks ugly to me. I think it's turning out great.

I think it looks great! I can't even see blocks that need to be moved around. Did you use lots of scraps from your bins or did the multiply while they were getting fresh air?

Scrappy is my favorite so I really like your blocks. Been wanting to try log cabin blocks with strings, guess I won't be afraid to try now.

Your Log Cabin quilt is lovely. I am looking forward to see what you will do to it next - borders and quilting.

I wouldn't move a thing... it looks great just like that!

It's hard to tell that your strips are not all the same width until closer inspection. Looks great to me!

I couldn't find anything to move?! Don't they say it helps the brain to try different puzzles, games or patterns!

they all look great to me-nice to change it up and still decrease those strips/strings/scraps.

If you DO love scrappy (like me) these look wonderful :)

I love it! I have been cutting strips from my flannel scraps, specifically for makinga a log cabin. I bought some great cheddar flannel for the middle. I can't wait to get started, but am making myself finish some UFOs first.
