The next prompt for the Liberated Medallion Quilt Along has been announced. The most recent prompt was to use log cabins as inspiration. It didn't have to be actual log cabin blocks (or variants thereof) but could be a riff on any of the names of quilt designs made with log cabin blocks. I'd already used liberated log cabins for the first round...
So I wasn't sure what to do next. The best idea I had was to make some stars, perhaps half light and half dark in the way traditional log cabin blocks are. My stash of dark prints is getting a bit low however. I went online and found more of the bats that surround the baskets. Winter Creek Cloth also had that print in a purple I thought would work so I bought some of that too.
By this time it was nearly the end of July. I was torn between trying to make up some stars and adding them to my medallion or just waiting for the next prompt to see what would come next. Guess what Katy chose for the next prompt? Stars!
So for my log cabin inspired round all I did was frame up my medallion with four strips added in Courthouse Steps fashion:
It now has dimensions that should be easier to work with (i.e. nice round numbers) and I can make stars any old way I want. ;- )
