Last night I had a 5 minute flick through one of my crafting books, whilst waiting for the kettle to boil...as you do...and was inspired by one of the projects of a log cabin quilt.
I've flicked through this book umpteen times and seen numerous log cabin cushions and quilts. Whilst I've loved looking at them I've never considered making one. Sometimes you just have to wait for the right moment to be inspired.
It seems that this was the right moment because as soon, as I saw this particular one, I had a light-bulb moment of wanting to make one and I couldn't get to bed fast enough so that it would be morning quickly and I could get going!
I've been wanting to do some more cushions for the living room. Bigger ones this time, so this seemed perfect. For those that haven't made a log cabin before, I can not tell you how wonderful they are to do. For those that have, you know exactly what I mean. From choosing the fabrics, to cutting the strips, to piecing it all out and seeing it grow is such a joy.
Because I was loving seeing it grow so much, I couldn't stop! I got to the size of a largish cushion that I wanted, but I just couldn't stop there. So it is no longer a cushion...but a wall-hanging.
I am now buzzing with ideas for more log cabin pieces, so I think that cushion will come eventually.
