Market day 2

My first class was with Marti Mitchell



She was teaching us how to use her rulers for fast log cabin quilts 



How to add movement by using different size logs


Playing with colour placement


Keeping it monochromatic



Using solid inserts with log cabin blocks


She had great techniques on layering your fabric 

She suggested to always cut selvage edge rather than WOF edge

That side has less give and will result in truer cuts



Her technique allows you to cut,layer and take to the machine to sew! 


I was very impressed with her knowledge


My favorite blocks were the pineapple blocks

 This was a very informative and enjoyable!

Great start to the fun!!

Happy some good Canadian Chocolate for me today!!

Going to have to raid Charlene's stash today!!



  1. Beautiful quilts! Have a wonderful day ♥

  2. Marty Mitchell!!! I bet she was full of good info, Christa!! I have her log cabin ruler but i've never used it!!! You borrow my ruler so it gets some use LOL.

    1. She was fabulous! It was beyond my expectations and more


Thank you for reading and hope your enjoyed!!
