I got all the HSTs sewn and 16 blocks of my flannel plaid project made. This will be a birthday gift for my husband, due in November.
I got bored making flannel blocks, so I pulled out the other project I brought along, my original Log Cabin Triangles blocks. Last year at camp Chrissy & I tried out various layouts, which you can see in this post (scroll down). Then I put the original LCTs aside to work on the Quilt of Valor ones with Gwen (here) and the ones for Alycia (here). So it's high time I got back to the original LCTs and set them together.
I'm undecided what to do with it from this point. It currently measures 54" x 63", not really a very usable size. There isn't any more left of these two periwinkle blue prints and two magenta prints.
I have several options - let me know what you think.
- Finish it as is for a smallish lap quilt.
- To make it larger, find something that could work for a narrow stop border, then cut more of the low volume prints - I have plenty - for a piano keys border. More low volume logs would continue the theme to the edges.
- Find a bold print for a border to make it larger.
Do you have a suggestion?Today I need to unpack and get caught up on household stuff, so I may not get any sewing done, we'll see.
