Sewing Saturday

Wow can you believe that it is October 29th already. I can’t well okay I can because that is what the calendar says, but this month really flew by! It might have something to do with the MRI tomorrow that I have been dreading all month. Being claustrophobic and unable to take any sedating meds should make for an interesting morning..lol

I hope some of you have been checking out the Ghastlie Blog hop. Even if you don’t care for quilting there are a lot of really nice projects being made. They are inspiring me and giving me a little more confidence that mine isn’t really that bad in comparison. The ladies presenting on my day are pretty darn good in my eyes and I just hope people don’t click on mine and go...train wreck..lol I did have a few issues, but I will have to wait until after the 3rd to post about it and ask what I could have done differently.

Since it is the end of October my mind is already turning away from Halloween and to Christmas! Now I am not one of those people that come November 1st they put up the tree and decorate the house, but I do start making my craft lists and checking them twice. I never get 90% of what I want to make done, but I do like to dream.

After taking my log cabin quilting class the idea came to me that a Christmas log cabin quilt would be great. So I picked my fabric and got my blocks all sewed together. It took more than a day; it was more like a week! Nonetheless, they are all pieced together and now I need some help in deciding which layout looks best. My favourite layout for the lap size quilt (lap is as big as I can handle right now) is fields and furrows; however I did that for my first quilt. The pictures are not great, but  the options are:

Timberline

Or
All sevens

Which do you think works best?
One of my little helpers tried to tell me which she liked best, but she couldn’t quite see in.

  2. Hoping all goes well with your MRI. Your quilt is going to be lovely...I really like log cabin quilts. I think I prefer the sevens setting best but you have to do the one YOU love most! Don't worry about your Ghastlie projects - this is all about having fun! Your projects will be just fine!
