« Designer Mystery 22/23 Log Cabin Blocks | Main | Resurrecting Red Sampler »

August 18, 2023



Looks great! I have 2 more monthly blocks to make before I can assemble. I did cut the blue plaid on the bias, and am very happy with the result.

Now you have me thinking about adding a border - just would mean I’d need something else for the backing.

The weather this summer has been something else!

This not working is good for your stitching... Beautiful!!!


Absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to see it with the borders. You did a beautiful job


That looks great! Beautiful work.


I really like how this quilt came out and it will look even better when you get the borders on it. I think a whole quilt of the log cabin with a star blocks would be pretty impressive too.

Also, sorry to hear earlier about your job/writing work but I have to say, I find full retirement to be pretty awesome!


I agree with you about wonky plaids. Joanne's idea to cut them on the bias sounds like a good solution for this quilt. We've got hot weather, but our highs are in the mid-90's. The added problem for this area has been smoke from fires in Canada. Staying inside to sew has been my solution!


WOW. This is going to be amazing. I agree about the plaid though-it drives me mad when lines are off kilter. I am also sorry to hear about your writing job. We're looking at AI and ChatGPT and how are students will or are using them.

So pretty! I totally agree with you about plaids…i gotta have them cut straight with straight seams or not use them…

Such s lovely quilt this is! I didn't buy plaid fabrics for several years because of the problems. Now, if I can cut it straight I will use it, but never randomly as so often they aren't straight.
