Log Cabin Squares

Several months ago I was able to get out on a crafty outing by going to see Susan Beal do a book signing at Powell’s for her most recent book, Modern Log Cabin Quilting. I was star-struck by seeing some of the well-known Portland bloggers that were there for the event. I am such a geek. 

After purchasing her book, I decided to give some log cabin squares a try. It’s pretty addictive and a great way to use up your scraps. Here’s a few of my experiments:

Playing with greens

Playing with browns

Playing with blues

I used the blue log cabin squares to make a little zippered pouch project that is included in Susan’s book. I’ll get some pictures up of that when I can.
