Curved log cabin

Here's what's on my design floor, couch, pressing board.  A new curved log cabin.  White strips are Kona, the gorgeous reds/pinks/oranges are Kaffe and company.

The block will get another set of white and another set of colored blocks.

Here is one possibility.

You get the picture.
So now I'm playing with layouts.  Every time I do a couple of blocks, I have to play with them.  I swear this is my favorite part of the process.  Well that and picking out the fabrics and deciding where to put them.

And all the colored strips were cut by my new Shape-cut ruler.  Yay!  Look, Ma, evenly-cut strips!  The whites are from a Kona honey bun.

Tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company, of course.  Jenny's approach is clearly the one for me.

It's going to be a striking quilt! Curved log cabin is on my to-do list, but there are just too many quilts on there....

Oh you can't go wrong Ruth with all those KF & Co fabrics - it's looking gorgeous and I'm finding it too hard to pick my favourite layout. Don't you just love your Shape Cut Ruler, I've got several, wouldn't be without them :D
