Once I get the whole thing sewn together I will still need borders, but I couldn't resist sharing with you.
It will measure 58" by 58" once the last huge block is attached. Then a nice wide border and it too will be ready to sandwich.
Log cabins are so quick and easy to sew up, the cutting is what takes a bit of time. A huge pile of 2.5" strips and Bob's your uncle! A Log Cabin quilt top. Of course it will look so much nicer once the border is sewn on don't you think?
I am pleased with the layout, I didn't like the staggered look, nor the fields and furrows, I thought this looked good to me with good space for quilting.
I have lots of the paisley print left so I can have nice wide borders.
I think I could make some piping using the unbleached muslin along the paisley border, it might just look all right? Have you ever used piping to enhance your quilts?
Getting this far was great but I was finally so tired and decided that I could cut and sew the borders this weekend.
There wasn't much on tv so I went web surfing and stumbled across Cathy Miller, the Singing Quilter. I confess I had heard of her some years ago but never really went looking for her, but my web surfing led me to her web site. She's a good read and her travels are so interesting and the people she knows in the Quilting world is astounding. If you have time and want to meet this interesting woman, you can find her real easy just click here! If you haven't met her before your infor a real treat, I decided she was someone I wanted to follow, so that means I get to be informed of all her adventures, she's actually making ready to go to Australia.
For the most part my camera is always at the ready, I got these pictures of the storm last night. What weird and wacky weather patterns we seem to be experiencing lately.....
Drat and double drat, but I did manage to snap off this beautiful picture of another much larger rainbow and a soaking......LOL Enjoy!Thanks for stopping by to visit with me today, I sincerely hope your day will be filled with sunlight and laughter.
Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. ~Guilaume Apollinaire
