Here's what those log cabin blocks turned into. Nice and bright. Took me ages to do the border - they are all 1.5 inch strips but I used almost all my bright scrappy strips so I was pleased. I thought I had a piece of fleece to use for the backing but it was too small so I will pick some up next week and quilt it. I still have a load of darker, muted strips left and they are simmering - lol !
I also finished this little quilt. Did the binding today. This will be going to a little girl called Casey for her dolls pram. She is a friend of a friends daughter's daughter - lol ! Originally this was going to be a panel of a bag I was making for my sister but I must have had a brain storm and made it far too big. So little Casey (who is 2 years old ) will have this instead.
I am really fighting with myself at the moment not to start anything new. As the heading suggests I am getting close to a couple of finishes. Won't tell you what but I am really excited to be almost there. I have seen some great things this week both in magazines and in Blogland that I WANT to make desperately but so far I have been good. Not blinking easy - lol !! I have had a little email with Nadine. She has a post about her UFO's that I completely agree with. I have not decided yet whether I will be doing Bonnies next mystery quilt. It is sort of due to start on April 1st. I will see what I can get done in the next couple of weeks and see how I feel then.
I have also been doing a spot of crochet for a change. Just a little item. I would post a picture but at the moment you would not be able to tell what it is. Actually my crochet skills are a little rusty so you may still NOT be able to tell what it is when it's finished - lol !!
Next post will be of a finished quilt I promise - must dash - still a couple of hours til my eyes start drooping. :-)
