Cabin blocks

I started making cabin blocks this week and I can't stop! I've always loved the look of them, but I thought they looked too complicated to make. Then I realized it's really quite simple! I really want my next quilt to be all cabin blocks. Making them helps me use up a lot of my scraps too. 
I tried to use kind of a color theme for this one...sort of
This is just a crazy one 
I made another zippy pouch and I incorporated an embroidery I did of a tape. I seem to be loving anything tape-themed thing these days....

close up of the embroidery, I have a second one I'm working on too.
