Super Sized Hex Log Cabin Block

Hi everyone, I wanted to show you what quilt blogging is all about INSPIRATION. I think Scott Hansen at Blue Nickel Studios is amazing. If you go over there you will see a very easy blog on how to create a
Hex Log Cabin block. So for the last 2 days I have worked on this:

Still not done yet but it is a start. The starting triangle is 5 1/2", and the strips are 2 1/2" strips (took almost a whole Jelly Roll to make this one block). The 6 blocks are just laid out so you can see what it will look like together.

(the jelly roll was purchased at JoAnn's, Fabric Central Jellies - Refresh, 20 Strips; the brown triangle was a Moda scrap, no designer listed because it is a scrap)

My point about inspiration is if you spend all your time trying to just create an original design you will lose track of the art. Stop by someone you admires blog and tell them how they inspire you. I do believe Quilting is a form of Art. To become accomplished at any art form you have to practice. With all the Quilting blogs on the internet, it opens up all kinds doors to practice our art form. Art should be appreciated.
Think I'll go to a party! Come join me.


  1. I know what you mean! I've seen some great quilts and thought oooo I could do something similar, but make it my own. I'm forever bookmarking, but am always sure to tell the person I am! =D
