Log Cabin Block

I made my first "real" log cabin block today for the Sew Sweet Bee.   I really love the colors she chose!  Now I'll have to decide if I want a red and aqua quilt or a pastel quilt!  I'm thinking of doing baskets for my month in July.  I just can't decide on the colors or the 12 1/2 inch basket!
Clara from  Clover and Violet chose the log cabin block for her block.  You can see her pattern and the blocks she made here:  http://www.cloverandviolet.com/2014/02/log-cabin-blocks.html
I hope she likes my block, I'm thinking maybe I should have put the red on white strips closer to the center, but my white strips were from small scraps.  I love white on white fabric!
She wanted aqua on one side, low volume on the other side and red in the middle.  I bet this quilt is going to be gorgeous when she is done!

Be sure to visit the flicker group at the top to see other people's blocks.
Thank you Donna from Donna's Lavender Nest for this fun bee!

I think we found a rental, we are just waiting for the final approval from the paperwork.  It is a cute whimsical house that is very sweet.  It has turquoise trim, doors and garage doors!  I wish it was a little bigger sewing room and a lot bigger kitchen, but there is a LOT of built in storage and a screened in front porch that the cats will love.  Please pray that everything goes smoothly and we can move in this weekend.

I did not get any sewing done today, I watched some children who are homeschooled.  Mothers who homeschool are very special ladies who do a lot of work with their children.

Your log cabin block is sweet! That is a pattern on my want-to-do list.

I will pray for your rental approval. I cringe at the idea of you having to move again so soon. You need a better house, its just so much work :)

Your block turned out great. I think you should do a red and aqua quilt. That would be so much fun.
