These heavy twelve-inch cabins don’t want to stay on my wall, and I can barely reach to pin them, even with my stool. Still, I love the Streak of Lightning set. I varied the size of the red centers to use up some scraps I had, and I think it adds some interest. The logs are all in blues and grays, and each has one red or rust log.
Today, back from traveling, I made some final adjustments to the layout and then numbered the blocks with a Crayola washable marker. Then I climbed up and took them all down and put them away for another time, because it’s not on my July list. It’s just a scrappy donation top I was working on when I wanted some mindless piecing. I’ll only be home about a week between trips, and I want to try to piece the top for my SIL’s quilt before we head west.
Last week, when we were east, I bought fabric very reasonably at Zook Fabrics in Intercourse, PA. They have a really large selection, but I stuck with pieces I needed for backs or sashing. I think they’re beautiful, even if they are a bit muddy.
Are you playing with fabric today? Hope so!
I’m linking up with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
