    Curved log cabin - HELP I'm in big trouble! :-((

    I've been planning and working on the curved log cabin quilt and am in love with the pattern Jenny has in her tutorial. I'm almost done with the blocks but noticed that the honey bun and also the jelly roll wouldn't be enough! Well the mistake was all mine. Instead of sewing 36 blocks, I am in the process of making 48! So, now I had to order more more fabric to even finish the 36 needed in the original pattern.

    My question is: Is there any way to utilize these 48 to make a larger quilt (I'm aiming at a bedspread) and still keep the look and feel of the original??? I'm not an experienced quilter and have a hard time visualizing how it will turn out. Would be EXTREMELY grateful for suggestions. I'm totally miserable and as I live in Sweden, it will probably take a month before I get the shipment. I've got blocks in different stages of completion all over my sewing room.

    Thank you!

      I've made 2 curved log cabin quilts & both times I needed extra fabric just to get 36 blocks completed. I don't know what I did wrong but I love the pattern no matter what. I'm not sure you'll be able to enlarge the design with the extra blocks but you could make pillow cases or a nice bag with you extras. Good luck.

        If you don't want to make it bigger, can you use the extra blocks to make matching pillow shams, pillow cases, or throw pillows? I think large square throw pillows would be fantastic! I prefer the ones with the opening on the back to insert store-bought throw pillows so that the case can be removed for washing, and I like the firmer throw pillows found in stores vs. the poly fill used to stuff pillows yourself.

          I think Deloris has an excellent idea there. The corners look great

              Thanks Dolores and all others. Not sure what I'll do, but I think I need to map the pattern out on paper.
