Uberfest! My turn!

Welcome all of you Uber-fest Quilters! I`m incredibly excited to be able to contribute a block to Scott`s quilt along! Did you see April's block yesterday? No pressure following that! lol


We were asked to design a block using HSTs (one of my ultime fav design elements) and log cabins, the original trendy block!
One of the reasons I loved the fabric I was sent, Sleeping Beauty by Nel Whatmore, was because I got one of the pieces that is technically a strip but it is so big I could use different parts as different colour patches. The orange fabric came from there.

What I came up with is what I`ve called Bear Cabin! Can you see why?


You can download the pattern sheet here. If you have any question just sent me an e-mail! I'm happy to help!
Make sure you check out Heather's block tomorrow! She is one creative lady!

I really like your block! Just one observation... I think the second orange strip should be 6 1/2" x 2" rather than 7". I should have a pic of my block up sortly! :-) Thanks!

Mairi said...

ooops I meant the 7 1/2"!!

I can't wait to do your block, but it will have to wait until I return from vacation. I only have the first 5 done so far, but I'm getting there.

I did mine this afternoon and I have a query. When cutting the 4" squares, shouldn't it be 6 cream, 4 orange and 2 red as opposed to 6:3:3? I ended up with a spare pair of red/cream HST's
