And isn't this one more example of how generous quilters can be! Making quilts for babies and kids in need, making pillowcases for our servicemen and women, buying raffle tickets to support another guild's project...all the time spent around warm quilts must lead to warm hearts.
Back to my project. Seeing just one block doesn't give a very good idea of how the curve comes into play in these curved log cabin blocks. So here's the first four blocks finished and I think this gives a better idea.
The logs in the light prints are half the width (finished size) of the logs in the darker prints. You sew them in rounds in the normal way and even though all the pieces have straight sides and you aren't sewing any curves, you get this curved effect. Now that I'm back in business, I should have more to show later this week.
