It's a Jungle Out There!

I finally got around to doing the Block Party's block for this week. It was an easy one, even though it is only 9 inches square. It is called "Chain and Cross". I don't like the name. so I think I am going to call mine "Jungle Fever". All of the fabric came from my scrap bin, so I am happy about that.
I have been sort of busy sewing all week. Well, not really busy, just sort of lazy. so I have nothing to show you. Sorry! All of my work has been the mindless sewing of wonky log cabin blocks. They are all at various stages of development. I just sew a few pieces of fabric together whenever I feel like it. I think I will start to square them and sandwich them and maybe do a quilt-as-you-go project. I'll take some photos as soon as I have something interesting to show for my efforts.

I go along with you for the name Jungle Fever. The other is morbid. Who wants a morbid quilt block. lol

OOOOOooooo I love this.... Do you ever make quilts to sell to folks? My mom and dad bought a log cabin quilt for me before they died but my friend's son got hold of it without my knowledge and ruined it wallering on it and sleeping on it. I had thought it was put away and while I was gone one weekend he was cold and found my quilt, didn't realize it was special to me...

I love the fun fabrics you used for this. It appeals to my "wild side".

Got me all excited with this one. Thanks, Hetty, for making my heart sing.
