log cabin love

Annik, one of the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild members has started a quilt block drive to make quilts for the disaster relief in Japan. Log Cabins for Japan is a request for 10 1/2" log cabin blocks. She has a super easy tutorial here, but you can make any sort of log cabin block you please. Wonky, color blocked, symmetrical...it's all up to you.

Log Cabins for Japan

I'm hoping to break out my machine again this weekend and crank out a few. Sewtropolis in Minneapolis is accepting blocks through the mail or dropped off through April 8th and then members of the local Twin Cities quilting community will be working to assemble blocks into finished quilts.

Send your blocks to:
Attn: Log Cabins for Japan
5 West Diamond Lake Road
Minneapolis, MN  55419

Read more about the effort on Annik's blog.

So, make one block or 12 and spread the word - together we can send some love to Japan.
