This was this week ends project. One quilt block. A log cabin block of a log cabin, out of Judy Martin's Log Cabin Qilt Book. Need to do about 7 more. Our local quild is making log cabin blocks for a quilt to raffle, and these will go in the quilt. Saturday afternoon I cut pieces for 5 blocks, but when I put them together, the logs were not enough contrast from the roof and it was too blah. I thought I was being clever finding landscape pieces that looked like wood, but the shadings of brown were too similar. So I cut some more pieces and ended up with just one block so far. I think I will make them all different.
Your block is so pretty. I bet the quilt will be beautiful.
patti, that is a really cute block. I think the contrast you ended up with is wonderful... All the plans we make - it is trial and error...lol
I am getting fed up with myself - I know I must have needed a break after all the quilt work I did last year but now it is almost a week since i did any quilting so have to get motivated... I have too many projects that need working on so just need to jump start myself and i will be off and running.
I am going to again pull out all my UFOs and put them on hangers and hang them on my curtain rod in my livingroom ... that motivated me last year and I got a lot of old and new quilts made. So up they will go and they will nag at me until I pull them down and finish them...
So we are ready to start...
I want this quilt on the machine! I have been under the weather for days! I usually get up about 8 am or earlier and go to bed at 3 am...lately sleeping 15-16 hours a day...tummy hates me! I thought it might be a virus...only thing I had was a 100 degree temp and really sore, rummy tummy. Might have been something I ate...don't know, but sure put a halt to anything that took any exertion at all. All I could do is look at the sewing machine and wish. I am online almost from the moment I get up...have been lying on sofa instead. I felt good enough (after pain med) last night to get the first two rows sewn...though not perfect as I would like..they are getting done.

What a cute block Patti! I really like the colors.
I'm really liking your quilt. Nice work.
Sorry you aren't feeling well. Hopefully it's just a bug and you'll be up an running in no time.
that's a really cute log cabin. The quilt will be beautiful.
Your quilt is very pretty. Love DWR and that is such a neat design....different than the usual.
Marge, Beautiful quilt. I would want it on the machine too if i was you but be patient you will get it done. I had that same thing you are talking about - it started new year's day only my temp was 102 + at times...I was sick for about 3 days got better and then went down again...now i am trying to build my stamina back up - haven't had much at all so I am sitting in my chair - i have been cleaning some each day getting my house back in order and playing online here and FB and SL... I know that my quilts will wait for me to be strong enough to do the job I need to do on them.. so be patient - have added you to my prayers that you get your strength back quickly - our bodies do tell us what they need.
Again beautiful quilt - thank you so much for shairng and share again when you get it quilted please.
That is so cute. I would have never thought of doing it with the log cabin block. Genius!
I love your quilt! Hope you are feeling better soon.

marge, i'm sorry your tummy is giving you fits. get better soon. beautiful quilt, i would want it quilted as soon as possible too. gini
I really like your quilt, Marge! I look forward to seeing it quilted.
Now, for a question that's really none of my business: have you been to the doctor? I think 3 or 4 days of feeling unwell is understandable, but taking meds for stomach pain? I think you need to see the doctor. Just my 2¢ worth!
I do hope you feel better soon. I know you spend a lot of time quilting for yourself and others.
I agree with Judy. If you have went 3 days with stomach pain and it is not a symptom that you have frequently you should see your Dr. You should not have stomach pain for days at a time just from a virus.
