Amber's Block

I can't believe round one is over. Here's my start for round two:
I love how Amber puts so many prints together. She forces me to look at fabric in a different way and I'm always happy with what comes out in the end. I went with a wonky log cabin, but this time forced myself to mix it up a little more with varying log sizes and piecing logs together. I also left my rotary cutter alone until it was time to square the final block. I have to admit that I wasn't able to completely abandon my need to plan all of this, but I did go with the flow. When that bottom row didn't quite work out like I wanted, I just added to it with what I had left of another color. Surprise, the world did not come to an end ; )
*Don't worry Amber, that little dot on the blue fabric is just a droplet of dew, not a stain.
