Supply List Self-Mitered Log Cabin
|In progress, Detail 2016|
“Anita demonstrated how the Self-Mitered Log Cabin block is assembled using her Make It Simpler methods. She emphasized the importance of color and value when selecting fabric for this block, and we spent a good part of the morning sorting our colors and moving from one station to another to watch Anita analyze the scraps and strips we had brought. Anita used her own Log Cabin Quilt to illustrate the importance of the color concepts we were learning about.
We used the afternoon to construct two sample blocks, learning not only the MIS self-mitering technique, but also applying the color concepts Anita taught us earlier. Quilters were up to their elbows in fabric, enjoying the many possibilities that this block presents. It was another wonderful day spent with Anita. HQ members hope to build on what we learned, so we are planning a strip exchange and quilting day to work on our newly learned self-mitered log cabin blocks.”
