I know I know, another quilt post, but here it goes. I finished the 2 quilt tops, and the rest of the adopted quilt blocks - (I got more material this past Thursday when I was at Laurie's - had to finish 6 blocks that needed one log each, and then I had to make 8 complete blocks) - today! I was planning on going down to Green Bay to The Stitching Bee, but Brian didnt feel I needed to go, and talked me out of it - didnt want me putting more miles on my truck (rolling eyes). So I took advantage of the day, and I would have to say I was VERY successful!
This log cabin quilt was a joy to make - earlier tonight I just had 44 blocks, and I was looking for a layout that would be very functional. With the layout I choose, Im very happy with it, actually had played around with the different styles of log cabin layouts, but this one I really liked. There are 48 blocks, layed out it 6 rows accross, and 8 rows down. The blocks are 6 inches square. As you can see its totally different than the other log cabin I completed this morning. Now I just need to get the badding, and the backing material, which I will wash and iron, before taking the quilt tops up to Laurie Jean's.
On one of my cross stitching groups I read that a challenge was put out for a stitch-a-thon (but with cross stitching of course), but I just challenged myself to get the quilts done as far as I could this weekend. Which I was happy to report I did. :)
I did stitch last night, I worked on the Fire Fighter design for about 4 hrs. Of course you dont see much, but half of the design is rolled up on the scroll frame, hiding. I hope to have this completed this week (fingers crossed).
Well I better report to bed soon. Im tired. Have to work Mon, Tues, and Wed, Off on Thurs, and Friday. Have quilt class on Thurs, so I will be doing a show and tell. On Friday, we will likely take a ride over to Iron Mountain for some goodies.
