At the end of last week, before we got the grandkids, I managed to do a couple more of the log cabin blocks for Cécile and Béa's quilt along. The two blocks are now 4! And I'm NOT behind, which is a miracle!!
Here's another arrangement of them:
I have packed up 6 little packages for people who expressed an interest in getting my leftover fabrics so I'm OUT of it. That's making me think that maybe I'll do groupings of 4 blocks for this quilt along. Not sure if that's within the rules, but I may go ahead and try it. do something totally different every 4 blocks!
I also finished putting the borders on the Quilt of Valor I've finished. I am pleased with how it turned out (you may not notice that I ran out of border fabric and had to put something different for the 4th side.... oops!... I don't think it's terribly noticeable).
If I make this pattern again, I think I'd do the large diamond in reds to break it up a bit more. I also decided to use a yellow for the inner border because I thought it needed something different. I'm not sure what I'll use for the binding. I think the red might be too much. What do you think??
We had the lucky opportunity to have all FOUR of our grandkids over the house at one time (well, the little one is just 8 weeks old). My son was afraid the 7 yr old wouldn't be able to hold the little one so he and his wife wanted to be in the picture, too!
We were pretty excited to have them all, even for just a day!~
off to the post office to mail the FG scraps and the Quilt of Valor to the machine quilter. It has actually stopped raining here a little bit today so I may try for a walk. Brief respite. We have had a lot of rain. We keep a rain gauge outside our kitchen door and we've been emptying it every day, with at least 3-4 inches!
