Autumn log cabin blocks

I needed a no brainer sewing project.  And the log cabin I made last year using scrap red and green 2.5" strips was really quick, so I was easily lured into a new project.
The main problem I have is a lack of distinct colours left in my stash of pre cut strips and a very deleted supply of neutrals.  I didnt want to make blocks for no reason.  So chose autumn tones, as that is what I had and I could use them for a friends mothers quilt (her prefered palette they assure me) if needed.  I agreed to sew up blocks made by the family, to celebrate a special birthday.  But the deadline for blocks hasn't arrived yet. However as nobody in the family is a quilter, these blocks are my back up plan, in case I only get sent a few blocks!
I can see one strip that I considered neutral, is reading as dark in this photo.  Might need to do some unpicking...we will wait and see!

  1. I thought at first with your autumn colors you were being influenced se of us in the northern hemisphere. It will be fun to what blocks you recieve.

  2. I like the autumn colors, but I have to add that a log cabin is not mindless sewing to me. I have managed to mess up value placement if I don't concentrate closely. :)

  3. It will be interesting to see what the family-made blocks are like. I hope they are not too challenging to work with!
