Totally Finished, Name Changed

So this time the brown log cabin quilt is totally finished, binding, label and all 🙂  Oh, and it’s had a name change to “Cabin in the Woods” per popular opinion of those present at label writing time.

Here’s a pic of the solids from my stash that have gone into the box heading to my daughter in Turkey.  She asked could I send her some solids….how about 6.5 yards of them????  Can you say “stash out”?

Light Blue

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for November is light blue.  For the first time in many months, I’m actually sewing with the month’s color 😉  The light blue bar blocks are finished!  Check out the RSC link up here.

I had a huge bag of collars, cuffs and plackets from deboning thrifted shirts.  I just finished ironing, trimming and sorting them into the string boxes and so the light blue strings were almost all shirt plaids and stripes.  I’ve got the scrap string base for the wonky churn dash together too.
