Improvisational Log Cabin

I had some time this week to work on a new project of my own, an improvisationally pieced log cabin quilt. The center of each log cabin block is one of my hand dyed fabrics, which I dribbled with two shades of red, fuschia and ecru. I used commercial prints (the white polka dots on black and the tiny black polka dots on white), commercial batiks, antique kimono silks and some of my own hand dyed fabrics and batiks.

Here it is on my improvisational design wall (which doubles as my extra rolls of batting):

And here it is put together:

It is intentionally unsquare in shape. I hope to have time to quilt it this week.

The amaryllis in my studio has broken into bloom:

It is cold here today. Hopefully winter's last gasp!
