I think I am the only one who is using a dark background. Everyone else is using a light background. I really have to pay attention to the pattern because the drawings show the background as light and color as dark. I keep confusing myself because of this.
Today we made 8 half square log cabin blocks. First we made the center of the log cabin using both color and background. I precut all the logs before we started so it was easy to put them together.
We can now put some of the blocks together since the log cabin and double four patch fit together for four sections of the quilt. Next month we will work on more of the feathered star center block (I say more but since I haven't started it, that probably isn't accurate) and make two star blocks. I think these are sawtooth star within sawtooth star blocks.
