My friend from work just purchased a new home and I decided to make him and his wife a log cabin quilt for a house warming gift..
I needed purple and brown and wanted to do a classic red in the middle. I got lucky with the fabric. Found the colors I needed and at $1.50 a yard! So I bought enough to do the back also.
I read the directions and started to cut. . . started to sew . . . needed more material cut. I'm thinking I must of counted wrong originally.
I'm sewing . . . and sewing . . . What's taking me so long?
I finally finished the blocks last night and decided to iron them before going to bed.
I'm ironing. . . and ironing.
Yep, you probably already guessed. Instead of the 26 blocks I needed for a king quilt, I have 46 blocks, enough to make the king and a double.
I need to go back to math class.
