Now that a different quilt that fits her colors has been chosen, my sewing machine is cheerfully chugging along. (
And now, without much ado...
|Mock up of Log Cabin block--ain't she purty?|
|Strips in the waiting|
|Strips waiting to be cut|
|Even more strips to be cut|
Now, the real fun thing is...I've always wanted to make a log cabin for myself, being my favorite quilt and all. And I've always wanted to make a blue and yellow quilt; you see where this is heading... I decided that I would make a second quilt (same quilt) at the same time.
Aren't I inspired? TGS & OSLW are getting a California King Size and I'm getting a Queen Size. Only 85 blocks in all... only.
I'm sure you've noticed the quilt above isn't on a design board. I'm sure you're being benevolent and saying that it doesn't have to be on a design wall. But wait! I do have a quilt on the design wall, the blocks anyway.
I'm doing a leader-ender quilt, ala Bonnie Hunter, at the same time as the LC. I saw this cute spool quilt online and thought it was adorable. I had this jelly roll of 1.5" strips that I didn't know what quilt to make with them. I had bought them from Missouri Star Quilt Company Daily Deals because I liked the fabric so much. (Warning! The Daily Deal is addictive!) It obviously lead to the idea to make the spool quilt from that jelly roll.
Here's what is really on my real design wall...
