My first WIP Wednesday post for 2008. I'm going to start the year by working on and finishing a quilt that will be staying in our house!
Okay, this is how Grace's quilt for her bed is looking at the moment, hanging up on my felt wall. There is a little bit more hiding behind the Horn cabinet there. Initially I thought I would just sew a 3 inch border of hot pink around it and wolah, all finished. But as it has been hanging there, I thought, nope that isn't enough, it needs more.
So I fiddled around and designed the above layout. It is 31 inches across for the two centre log cabins, so I can make 4 little log cabins of 7 inches with a bit left over inbetween which I'll fill in with a strip of black or maybe the colour inbetween each of the blocks? Unsure, work that one out when I have sewn the 28 blocks needed, make that 27 as I have just done the one below to see if my measurements are correct. 27? Thats a lot of WIP Wednesday posts coming up about log cabins! You have been warned!
