3 log cabin blocks

I made these today and I'm really happy with them. I've had these 30's prints for a while and a couple of them I think are quite ugly but I like how the blocks turned out. If anyone wants to swap scraps with me, let me know here and I'll set it up.

Just wanted to post again that I got this idea from Melly and Me. I did make my blocks bigger; the finished measurements are: center square 3", logs 1" wide. Finished blocks are 9"--approximately.

And. Anybody have any ideas for getting the pictures to line up just in one column here? This is ridiculous.

scrappy log cabin

I have been looking at log cabin quilts and blocks on Flickr and really loving them. I came across this tutorial for scrappy log cabin blocks and I'm hankering to make some! Soon! SILs will be giving birth to a boy and a girl in the next few weeks so I'll be making a quilt for each of the new babies. I have a stack of 30's fabrics from a swap a while back and I'm going to start making log cabin blocks from them. I don't know if I'll use the same pattern as in the tutorial or make the blocks bigger. I'm thinking bigger. But I like how it looks to have the middle square bigger than the logs so I'm keeping that in mind while I plan.
