Log Cabin...and a mystery!!
OK everyone!! This is it...the last of the 1/2 inch strip log cabin blocks are finished!! I made four extra...don't know why I cannot count lately, LOL!! These were so very much fun...The quilt is really not that big, due to the small size of the blocks ( 4 inches). Am I going to make more? NOT!! I want to quit while I still love them!!
Here are all the blocks on the piano, where they got placed until I could lay them out. The piano is from 1912, and was a gift from dear husband long ago.
I could not resist a couple new books at the quilt shop...come to think of it...I need to STAY OUT OF THERE! But it is just so much fun, isn't it??
A couple broody hens...
And some of the leftovers from the log cabin strips found their way into this mug rug. Wouldn't a neutral quilt be so much fun??
Now for the gift! I was thinking (gasp!) of not doing Bonnie Hunter's of Quiltville's mystery quilt! That seems kind of sacrilegious or something! I did not have gray, or purples, or teals, having being a good girl and using all these colors up. My dear friend Mary, who works at the same hospital I do, gifted me with the most lovely, soft, dove gray fabric...it is so beautiful! So...I am hoarding it! LOL!
And lookee! These pretty fabrics too!! I am so in love with them all...thank you Mary! Please see her blog HERE.
So I am a spoiled lady...and now working on the mystery quilt! Please go here for all the details, you could do it too...fun, fun!!
