The theme this time was log cabins. That could be interpreted any way you wanted. It didn’t have to use actual log cabin blocks. I made some improv log cabin blocks for the corners, but went with just straight “logs” for the borders.
And here it is!
Honestly, it took me forever to decide what to do here! I used up a charm pack and some scraps to make the border and I am now quite pleased with it. It looks less formal now.
And now it is my turn to announce the theme for the next round! I’m so excited! Drum roll please…..the theme will be……
I think this book may be my very favorite Gwennie book.
And my favorite quilt in the book is this one:
Aren’t those stars awesome? Here is another quilt from the same book.
I literally took pictures with my phone of the snap shots I took before I gave these away. That tells you how long ago I made these! LOL
So the challenge for this next round, is to create a border with the star theme. You could make your entire medallion into a star center or add stars in your borders. Heck, you could use star fabric! We will be linking up the results of this round here on September 1st.
But start sewing just yet! Hop on over to Lori’s blog, Humble Quilts, to see the results of the log cabin round that we just finished. Even if you don’t have yours complete, link up your progress. We want to see!
Have a wonderful day!
