I finally got these done for Ruth. I was a bit worried about making them, until I realized that "Drunk Love in a Log Cabin" is another way to say wonky log cabin. That I understand. So anyway, here they are. I am putting them in the mail Tuesday. Ruth, sorry they're a few days late.
Happy Memorial Day!

I've also mailed out the June packages to you(all but one that I missed and will send out Tues.) The instructions are in with the packages and on Flickr.
I have decided to go ahead w/the two different blocks. Some of you will be making 12.5" Strippy Circles and some of you will be making Wonky Log Cabins in various sizes. I'll be adding white to the log cabins to size them up to 12.5 later. Expect to see lots of weird and random scraps as they are mostly apron leftovers. I hope you'll enjoy making what I've sent!

So, I'm going to go scrappy!
I'm thinking I'd like two blocks. This scrappy circle, and a variation on one of my favorite blocks, the wonky log cabin.
Rather than asking each of you to make two different blocks, I was thinking of randomly selecting six of you to do one or the other. What do you think? Is that within the rules? If not, I'll settle on one block and make up the others. Either way, I'm good!

These blocks were fun to put together!
I can't wait to see all of the color combos together. This quilt is going to be great!
My first block came together quickly & easily. I don't know what happened with the second block but I just could not get my seams to line up properly. I had to wield the seam ripper a few times before saying, enough is enough.
When all is said & done I think they came out great! Looking forward to seeing them all together!

For this month, I’d like you all to make improv log cabin style blocks based on Denyse Schmidt’s classic quilt, “Drunk Love in a Log Cabin.” You can view the original quilt in the previous post. A number of other quilting bees have made blocks inspired by this design so I’ve posted an inspiration mosaic in our Flickr group and our blog.
I’m using a rainbow of colors and have six different color schemes. The design for this is pretty open – please use the original Denyse Schmidt blocks to inspire you but don’t feel the need to replicate them exactly. Please make two blocks, ranging from 9.5” to 12.5” (though if you don’t want to square them up, I’d be happy to do so once I receive them). You may use coordinating prints from your own stash – small prints only please, and keeping with the appropriate color scheme of the fabrics that you receive. This is meant to be fun and individualized – I’m looking forward to having a piece of you all in my quilt!
Feel free to keep any scraps or send them back – it’s up to you.
