[workinprogress]

A new week and the start of another quilt project.  Admittedly Monday is usually my most unproductive day but this week I got my act together, turned my back on the the chores, and instead moved from the sewing machine to the ironing board and immediately back again.
This quilt is a custom order for a  log cabin quilt, the same as this previously made quilt:  Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt, although smaller and with an extra dose of citrus colors in the mix.


These blocks (laid out quickly and at random to defeat the elements of nature:  wind and dog) will be joined together with white sashing in the same way as the original scrappy log cabin quilt.


 Another day of stitching today.  You won't hear me complaining about that.

  9. Hi Rita. Such a pretty and fresh quilt! I am so inspired by you. I think the sashing is a great idea with this one. Oh I can't wait to see the finished quilt :)

  10. I love this. The quilt with the sashing is nice (as I'm sure this one will be), but the controlled chaos of the sash-free layout is appealing as well.

  11. It is really nice. The colors blend beautifully. The solids realy stand out. Right now my little stash is being used for making doll clothes but soon I'll get back to quilts.

  18. Love the colors. When I go to put a scrappy quilt together it looks crappy so I don't go forward. Yours looks great. They always do.
