Time to Vote


First I wanted to thank you all for the advice to skip the house work and make something new.  I did do some house work, but not something new.  BUT, I did pull those scrap W/B log cabin blocks and set to work putting them into a quilt top.  I have to think on border(s) which it does need as it is too small as is - and NO, more blocks can't be added to please my no borders policy as these were scraps and they are gone.


I then went into my tub of flimsies to see what else could be prepped to hand off to the long armer.  See, she loves camo color quilts.  I have three backs (2 extra wides and one I pieced) ready and matched with their respective quilt and batt cut to size.  There is just one BIG quilt and one small quilt left in the tub now.


Moe!  Hey Moe!!  Well, he is going to be no help in announcing that it is time...


... to vote over at LilyPad Quilting for the Pets On Quilts Show.  Even if you didn't participate with a pet or pet themed quilt, you can earn some entries for random prizes for commenting on all the entries and other things, too.  Jacque has it all explained so nicely, so hop on over.  AND be sure to vote!   

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  6. The log cabin looks great, the red really pops so nicely. Moe knows he's handsome and probably feels like he's already won.

  7. Love the strong log cabin blocks.....use my recipe for the borders and quit stressing. Add 1 to 1/12'' strip in the accent color---red. Then use up any chunks of leftover....or another piece of dark that blends with the logs. Join the ends of the border pieces and insert any leftover strips/squares to pull the design together. call it done! Off to vote..
