So here I am. Ok. Still a full day tomorrow for loose ends. But I've been here and there and all the while stitching small cloth.
This log cabin format, so easy with a bag of scraps. Moon in the middle this time. Some kind of home from another kind of angle. The log cabin quilt has a long history, many patterns emerged from the way it is arranged. But the block itself always says home by it's nature, how it holds and spirals around center. I always liked that part. I was thinking of making houses out of them. But then, in my mind, they became big enough to hold a house.
But really what caught me this time is how home can be the simpleness of one's own world. And so I like the idea of the moon-cabin block. I do. As I rest in the idea of simpler times. Like I do. When I need to. And I'll name this small cloth after that. A simpler time.
Home might be small but it always holds the Moon. Or the sun. Or the Stars.
I was going to post about yesterday but the sunrise caught me off guard. I had some Cs which are equal to 3 As(the original square)... and a few Hs which are 1/2 squares (A) (that quilt math thing). So I cut one of the moon squares , leaving a bit to fold back and turned an A into an H. And I think I might do a moon-rise as well. I have to shovel a path to the woodpile right now though. Funny how there is always time for a little nine or not so nine patch.
I don't really think in quilt math. It is mostly for explaining. And using stuff up.
I sewed this in the dark almost. Not neat but perfect.
Funny when I look at this I expect the sun to be all the way up when I get back to it.
