Becoming a sampler?

As I'm putting together blocks for my first quilt I keep having the desire to try something just a little different.

I've never really been a fan of the log cabin quilt. Well, not until I picked up a book of piecework projects at my local library. I can't recall the name of the book, but it had the most beautiful log cabin projects in it. So, I decided I had to try a little log cabining for my quilt.

Above is the first square I made, and I loved it.

Then I moved on to a second square. It's sort of a reversal of the colour scheme of the first.

Then I joined 4 squares in the first design, and I am blown away.

I'm not sure yet how it will all come together, but I am really enjoying the process.

Wow, that finished block looks incredible.

So, please stop this immediately. I do NOT need another hobby. Thank you. :-)

Gorgeous! I love the Log Cabin and have at least one quilting book on just Log Cabin. Check out Debbie Mumm's patterns also. She is one of my favorites!
