Quilt fail: I don’t like my log cabin quilt top!


I’ve spent so much time trying to make this mini log cabin quilt just perfect, and I still don’t like it. I started by making mini log cabin blocks using my free tutorial here.

I made a lot… 120 little blocks.

And I used graph paper to sketch out a layout that I thought I liked. But when I sewed them together I wasn’t so sure.


And now the more that I look at it the more I just don’t like it. I want to pick it apart down to the blocks again and figure out a new layout. Sigh. Has that ever happened to you?

Okay enough about me and my quilt frustration. I hope you’ve had a much more productive week.

UPDATE: I found a layout for this quilt that made me happy and posted a picture in the tutorial.

Happy Sewing!
