Time in a Bottle Block and Log Cabin Quilts

TIme in a Bottle square for Georges Valley song square challenge  4-2015Our guild chapter, Georges Valley,  is having a little challenge to make a nine inch block that reflects a song title.  I decided to do “time in a Bottle” by Jim Croce.  Had fun with this project and would like to do a few more blocks.  Lots of ideas come to mind, but I haven’t made the time yet to do any of them.  Probably because I am obsessed with a log cabin I am in the process of making and spending too many hours on, neglecting everything else around the house!   At our last Coastal Quilters meeting, one of the members showed a log cabin quilt made with half the logs black and white and the other half multicolored and scrappy.   Logs were all different sizes.  I loved that quilt and am making one for me!   Hopefully will post a picture before too long.


Music square challenge

TIme in a Bottle square for Georges Valley song square challenge  4-2015Our local guild chapter is having a musical themed block challenge and the  nine inch blocks will be turned in at the May meeting.   They will then be assembled into a quilt top and raffled off at our June meeting to some lucky winner.  My inspiration song was “Time in a Bottle” by Jim Croce.  I was looking through my stash trying to come up with ideas when I came across the clock fabric and the block just came together.  Looking forward to seeing what the other members come up with.   Hopefully will get a picture of the completed top to post at a later date.
