The last time I talked about my Alternative Trip Around the Block. I had completed the Modern Frame Log Cabin block. I made two variations and inspired by slow stitching and by my increasing enjoyment of hand stitching I decided to put the two blocks together and do a bit of kantha stitching...
...and give bit of a nod to Japanese Boro stitching.
The thing is all of this stitching has drastically changed the size and shape of this block and for a while I was pondering how I was going to bring it to 12 x 12 inches.
But then I thought the whole point of doing this is to have some fun and see where it takes me and that is when I decided to over stitch by hand around the whole block.
I will share the whole block when I have finished.
I could be here a while!
**This is part of my own personal challenge to create and learn a bit more about traditional quilt blocks while adding my own twist, as described here. I am following the free Block of the Month classes on Craftsy as my guide.
