More Canada big quilt bee blocks – 2017.04.30

This week, I made another 4 blocks for Canada’s Big Quilt Bee.  I used a new-to-me technique.  I made 4 large log cabin blocks (approximately 13 to 15 inches square).  Then I stacked them on top of each other, and sliced through them all to cut them into quarters.



Then I mixed and matched the quarters, and sewed them back together to make 4 blocks.  For a couple of them, I had to add one or two strips of fabric to make the finished blocks the required size of 12.5 inches square.



Here are my four new blocks.


Here are the blocks I made previously.
