Description

It's Queen Nicole's time to reign over Hive #4. She chose a traditional log cabin block but keeping to just reds and whites. I can't wait to see how these blocks will all come together because she says it will form a curve! Must have something to do with the whites being narrower strips than the reds.

I got a little carried away and made more logs than I was supposed to so my block exceeded the 10" size. I hated having to take the final logs off since I loved those reds the best. So much for my plan of leaving the best for last. That will teach me to read the instructions more closely before sewing!

True ,I so want to make a red & white quilt but haven't decided on a pattern yet. Have you ever made one?

Robynn

I like your block. You did a great job.

Gorgeous block. I am now going to do a red and white quilt and have been pinning loads of ideas on Pinterest and "collecting" fabrics

True

Terryt1955 I have not made one. I never think I am a big fan of red and then I see a block like this and love it. But it is a hard color for me to work with for some reason. Would love to see what you would do with it!!

Terryt1955

Capetowngirl I'd love to see your Pinterest board. It's always so fun to go "shopping" there!

I've been collecting reds also. I haven't decided if I'm going with dark reds or a mix. I guess it really depends on the pattern I chose.

Robynn Thanks!

Great mix of red fabrics. That's a color I don't have a lot of for some reason
