Two at a Time

I'm having so much fun working on these two projects this week! The selvage log cabins are coming along nicely. I need to make six more blocks for the layout I have planned. I was hoping to get them done today, but it is not looking promising. 
 

I have discovered that the process goes more quickly if I plan out the selvages before I sit down to sew. Here are my piles waiting to go. 
 

I'm using the Wild & Goosey blocks as leaders/enders and it is working like a charm!
 

I don't have enough variety to be truly random, so I dealt out the pieces last night while I was watching TV. Nineteen blocks ready to go! 
 

In about 40 minutes, I can sew a log cabin block and two goosey units. My Featherweight is getting a workout this week! I'm trying to take good care of her with lots of TLC and oil.


Have a great weekend!

Planned irregularity; that's my style too. Love both your projects--especially the color play in the wild goose quilt.

I love them both so much. The selvage log cabin is so creative. And I never would have thought to use wild and goosey as a leader/ender. Thanks so much for linking up!
