Thanks for all the input on the log cabin border. I still haven’t made a final decision but have narrowed the options. Today, I am trying to come up with a plan for a quilt for one of my sisters. I made this quilt for my niece a couple years ago.
She took it to college with her but since she is home for the summer, my sister nabbed it for her guest room. Since I still have quite a few of these fabrics, I told her I would make her one of her own. These are all Denyse Schmidt prints. I have these strips all cut up and may use them if I can figure out a plan.
There are both 2 1/2 inch strips and 2 inch strips in here. I also have this lovely stack of charms that I cut.
I have yardage as well. I really love DS fabrics! I started collecting these prints when Daughter #1 got engaged so I could use them in her wedding quilt. I spent a week cutting all the bits for her quilt and at the same time, cutting out tumblers, hexagons, these strips and charms. This was before I had my die cutter! Here are the quilts I have made so far from my week of cutting. First a full on shot of the tumbler quilt for my niece shown above.
And this is my DS Hexie quilt that I recently gifted to a dear friend that is moving away.
I still haven’t tired of these prints and today, I may just put that die cutter to work and cut up the rest!
