Another Twisted Log Cabin Quilt - Rerun

Here is another twisted log cabin quilt I did WITHOUT paper piecing. Most people paper piece this pattern.
I came up with a method to do this block without paper piecing. It is every bit as accurate and I can piece 3-4 blocks in the time it takes to piece one paper pieced block. ANd besides that - there is no paper to remove when you are done.
I found students had the same positive experience making these.
My photo was so small I enlarged it for you but it lost some clarity when I did.
This also makes me thing spring.

So many people are showing photos of their beautiful gardens, trees and flowers on their blogs right now. You won't see a lot of those here. You may see a lot of green and occasionally some color on the trees and plants and yard decor.

Tonight's puzzle is the quilt that Suzie gave me when she visited me in FL. Hope you don't mind that I turned it sideways so I could use it as the puzzle Suzie.

I love the Twisted Log Cabin block. Your choice of colors is excellent. Good work.

I agree with you about paper piecing. It's a lot of work and I can get better results by just piecing.
