I continued assembling the Idaho Square Dance, but abruptly ran out of log cabin blocks. I had carefully calculated how many I needed given I am expanding the quilt by two rows to make a 60 by 80 inch quilt. According to new calculations, I needed fifteen more log cabin blocks. Fifteen?
After careful scrutiny of the sewing room, I found ten blocks that the cats had hidden in the chicken coop at the base of the design wall. This meant I only needed to make five more.
As you can see, at the end of assembling all of the diagonals, I have six log cabin blocks remaining.
And here are the diagonals pinned to the design wall. As I was pinning the quilt at the top of the design wall, Buddy poked his head over the top. He batted at the quilt blocks. He's quite adorable when he pretends to be a cat.
Meanwhile, the rectangular postage stamp blocks doubled.
