Drop and Log Cabin

All year I've tried to finish the Schnibbles projects for the parade and only one other month have I actually had a project almost completed.  I decided Monday to try again.  I was just sure Carrie Nelson's Little Bites Drop project could possibly be finished by the last day of the month.


I decided to make Drop No. 3 which is definitely smaller (mine is 8 x 9-1/2 inches), and with some Christmas fabric it looks to be a favorite.  There is a rhyme and reason to my setting of the blocks, they are diagonal by the outside triangles.  I really enjoyed making this, and I cannot wait to get it quilted.


I had mentioned earlier this year that I had never made a log cabin block before.  Guess what?  I'm loving them.  For some reason even though I have to do a lot of pressing in between, I just love adding the next piece.  This is number 335 of 366 and it is a 9-inch block.   Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
