One block at a time sweet quilter

Is it wrong to rework the words of a hymn?  Well, that's the soundtrack in my head as I'm plugging away one block at a time ....

I've been enamored with some pictures I've found recently of brown quilts and I've always wanted to make another log cabin quilt so I'm combining my two wants and working on a wonky log cabin quilt that will have brown sashing with blue corner squares (that's the plan anyway).   I'm loving these colors and each one is almost like a little work of art for me.  I've come to accept that I will never be able to produce quilts at the speed and volume that one probably should have to justify a quilting blog, but I'm determined to plug away methodically.  One.Block.A.Day.  

At night I'm finishing up the hand quilting on the second of two baby quilts.   I have one finished but just haven't had the gumption or stamina to trudge outside to the neighbor's clothesline after work for any pictures. I'm now thinking that I might as well finish them both and have one photo shoot.  Especially since I've never really confirmed that my neighbor gave me permission to use his clothesline.  Ummmm .... better not make too many trips out there until I get some acknowledgment of OKness. 

It's bitter cold today and I'm tucked into my warm, cozy house in honor of President's Day.  Thank you great Presidents!  I'm making a dinner and sewing and watching Housewife 49 while hand quilting.  Perfect :)


  1. I love your log cabin squares. I am knitting some log cabin squares right now for my Paracheesi Afghan. I am addicted to them. Yours are beautiful enough to hang in the window all the time!

  2. I like the colors! And I like the wonky long cabin it gives a neat effect.

  3. Your blocks are wonderful...and of course the hand quilting fantastic! I can't wait to see it all finished.

  4. I love those wonky log cabins! The mixture of the colors and prints look divine!

  5. Your quilts are absolutely blog worthy, I love them and you are very talented!! Especially your Star Quilt and I would love to give those wonky log cabins a try, have fun..

  6. Wow! They look like beautiful stained glass held up like that!

  7. It would be lovely to see a photo when they are complete! And I like your idea of a block a day. Sometimes I get frustrated when I don't have much time to sew during the week :(. One block a day is a good idea.
