Log Cabin Blocks, Liberated Triangles, 'Coins in the Sun' Finish

'Artful Log Cabin Quilts' by Katie Pasquini Masopust, great fun ideas in this book.

It's a finish, 'Coins in the Sun', 22" x 18".

Happy Friday from the sunny Pacific NW!!
When the sun shines here the views are outstanding. The Olympic Mts to the west and the Cascade Mt range to the east are breath taking.

I've made progress on some of my projects and I've been reading and enjoying Katie Pasquini Masopust's book, 'Artful Log cabin Quilts', C&T Publishing. If you enjoy log cabin blocks and color and great ideas this is the book for you. 

My 'Coins in the Sun' is now officially done. It was started with an Ad Hoc Improv Quilts challenge.
AHIQ is hosted by Ann and Kaja , and a big thanks to them for the inspiration that comes from that.

I'm still working through Gwen Marston's classes offered by 'iquilt' . Her two classes there are, Abstract Quilts in Solids and Liberated Quilt Making. I highly recommend both. They are priceless for color use and fearless design.
My 'liberated' triangle experiment, above, is a project of mine from Abstract Quilts in Solids.
I've been spending a lot of time outside so my quilts and sewing are on the slow burner for now.

I hope you're enjoying your summer.
Enjoy your weekend and I'll be by to visit.
