Inching Along

I am starting to feel a little better after a very restful weekend. I spent most of my time lying on the bed paging through magazines and watching television. Very little quilting stuff got done, I'm afraid.

I have worked on the posy quilt some more, but I am running out of the muslin. eeek! I spent part of this afternoon debating whether or not to just break down and buy more--it won't match exactly, but hopefully the color difference won't be too obvious if I just use it around the edges.

The log cabin has been sitting patiently on the wall for the past few weeks waiting for inspiration to hit. I think I have a pretty good idea where I'm going with this now. I've got some of the border strips cut, and I'm piecing some more strips, so we'll see how that works out.

The rather odd winter weather we've been having continued today, with temperatures rising into the 50's. Contrast that with the weekend when we had more snow and temperatures in the 20's.

Glad to hear that you're feeling better.

That Log Cabin quilt is very pretty! I like the colors.

Maybe a very pale pink or green around the edges if you can't get the colour you want. It might solve your problem and give a hint of a border. You have worked very quickly on your hexagons.

Ah heck, just buy the muslin. Isn't that what we love about antique quilts - that every little thing is not matchy/matchy perfect. 100 years from now they'll wonder how you made your design decision *s*

Love the colours in your log cabin! I think it might just be time for me to make another l.c.
