My orphaned block was a hand pieced Log Cabin. Probably made around the 1950's as it is made from feed sack.
The block was a 6" square. I decided to add some punch with a new piece of black and white dot cotton. I put away the rotary cutter and just made some slight curved slices. Restitched (using the machine). Then since I like small quilts I dug out the ruler and rotary cutter and trimmed the block to a 5 1/4" square.
So here is my beginning, it will be fun to see where we go from here.
