Ad Hoc Improv, Light & Liberated, Small 'Cabin' Blocks, Fun with Improv

My Log Cabin Blocks final arrangement last week.

I sewed on two borders last week, blocks 6 1/2" sq.

Small log cabin blocks, before trimming.

Trimming and sizing almost done.

Small log cabin blocks trimmed to approx. 3" sq.

I like this arrangement! The blocks will be 2 1/2" sq. , finished.

Hello! It's time for AHIQ again. 
Up for the challenge? The theme is scale.

I thought about what I could do with scale and since I've been on a Log Cabin block roll, I decided to make up smaller size Log Cabins.

Looking at my 'liberated' light log cabin quilt with 6 1/2" blocks and two borders, I thought maybe I'd put on another border with small log cabins.
Getting out scraps I began making up small 'cabins'.  

When I got them all trimmed up, I changed my mind. I think the small cabins look great together as a mini quilt.
And 'Light & Liberated' isn't getting any more borders today.

That was my journey into scale for this month's AHIQ #33. Thanks Ann  and Kaja  for hosting.
Stop in to get inspired and see what other improv is going on!

I'll be by to visit.
