Well, today finds me having a little more fun on this quilt. I achieved my personal mini goal yesterday and was able to complete all the log cabin blocks! Yeah me!
Last night I arranged the upper left corner of the quilt. I fussy cut a particular stripe fabric I had in my stash to go around the medallion lonestar center and I’m really loving that. Now, here’s the funny part. I did not like how that outer border was looking at all to my naked eye. I started thinking, OK Tara – that’s just not going to cut it. Darn – guess I’ll use it as a backing!
Well, live and learn – how many times have I heard of people taking photos of their quilts and then changing their minds about certain things once they see the digital image?? Tons – now that I’ve taken this photo and looked at it all from a different angle – I’m liking the border fabric again. Live and learn I guess!
Today, my goal is to complete this section of the quilt. Then I hope to pull some fabrics to get started on making a sample of one of the Jo’s Little Women Club #10 quilts. Also, I want to pull some fabrics for one of the quilts from the Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle Journey #1 club quilts! Sounds like a pretty busy day to me! Oh yeah, some hand piecing on those spool blocks again this evening sounds quite enticing with a nice hot cup of tea!
