User name of the Quilter: Anke

Name of the exercise: Outside the Square


What Anke says about week 10:

While reading the task "Outside the Square" I spontaneously thought about a Log Cabin motif, which starts with a small square with many strips around the center. I decided to use ​​a slightly larger dark blue square as middle block and add many different strips in white and blue prints matching my other MYoD practice blocks. Interestingly, it was the first time that I had sewn a Log Cabin. It seemed always too much work for me to cut the narrow strips, to sew and iron them piece by piece. Although I had sewn the strips carefully, the strips still puckered and the result was pretty wonky and ripply. Not very nice… That's why I decided to add a batting and quilt this block flat with many rays of sunlight....
