Certificate Module 2 Chapter 7 PS
Sian wondered what the back of my log cabin pieces looked like, so here they are:
Sian also suggested I might try chopping up one of the log cabin blocks to make a seminole design. I sliced 2.7.A8 into diagonal strips then played about with the layout until I got something I liked. I liked the fact that the shape changed from a square to a much more interesting one. I also liked the chevron effect gained by turning alternate strips upside down.
This has given me a renewed interest in log cabin piecing - as long as I chop it into bits afterwards!!
