LOG CABIN CIRCLES

Every spring I wait with baited breath for the Quilt Sampler to come out. I was grocery shopping on Mother's Day and there it was!


The quilt on the front cover caught my attention so I made a couple of blocks right away.


Then a couple more just to see what four would look like


I purposely used the scraps from my arrow blocks because I'm thinking of using these in the quilt too. They look good hanging out together




I'm not sure yet where this is going, but I like it.  A lot  : )

Arrows have been popping up in the blogosphere and will be landing in my mailbox soon. Looking forward to showing them to you.

linking up with work in progress Wednesday

I saw that quilt too and thought it was fabulous. It's such a great scrap quilt. It looks terrific with the arrows.

Our LQS is in that magazine - Roxanne's.

I like it a lot too. I haven't seen the magazine here yet but it's a great idea. Love the arrows with it too.

Oh my goodness, that is a beautiful quilt on the cover. Yours looks really nice with the arrows in it.

Your arrows and the log cabin circles were made for each other--a really nice combination!

Kathleen OGrady said...

I love what I see! I really like how the log cabins make a circle, very cool. I did not like the arrows when I first started seeing them in blog land but I really, really like them now and they are on my to-do list. I think I need to get a copy of Quilt Sampler also.

Kate said...

Those look awesome. Looking forward to seeing them together!

Hi Carla! Looks so exciting! Your arrows are fantastic and I love these NEW circles with log cabins. Your 'mixed' quilt design will be beautiful! x Teje

The fabrics look fabulous, and the circle log cabin very tempting. I will watch for the new book, didn't know it was out. Can't wait to see your new quilt design.

Oh! Oh! These are AWESOME!! So much love for the arrows. And I am so glad that the magazine found you on Mother's Day. Gotta love timing like that.

I liked the aqua and orange blocks mixed together. Made them pop!

Anne said...

I just bought that issue too and really liked the same quilt. Amazed how you jumped on it. I was thinking of making a feather for your bee block. Would you prefer another arrow?

grannymaudsgirl said...

I love all the blocks, but I am itching to make some of those log cabin circles myself.

Karyn said...

Great combination of ideas!

Celtic Thistle said...

You didn't waste any time getting started on those blocks! They look great with your arrow blocks.

Donna quilts said...

I, too, snatch up the Quilt Sampler magazine as soon as I see it out. I just love looking at the photos of all quilts hanging in the shops. I like the colors in your new blocks. They look good with your arrows.

Andrea @ Mouse in My Pocket said...

I love what you have up on your design wall so far. I can't wait to see what it becomes!

Crazy cool arrows, Carla - am clearly not reading enough blogs: haven't seen arrows before but I really like yours!

CitricSugar said...

You had me at log cabins! Oh, and the colours. And the arrows. Great work. :-)

This is obviously going to be another AMAZING quilt

Nicole G said...

That's going to be a fun quilt!

Kevin the Quilter said...

I have missed so much! Look at this feast for the eyes you have been working on! Love those arrows! Thanks for the tut!

Debra said...

Wow-wee - your blocks look great! I need to look for a copy of this Quilt Sampler. I am working on the same block (off-set log cabin) for the RSC2014. You can see my most recent on my blog - debraharryquilts.blogspot.com. Love seeing others working on the same pattern!

Carrie P. said...

I want to make that quilt too. The arrow blocks and log cabin blocks look really great together.
