    This one was one of the most difficult ones I've made. I abandoned it for awhile--teaching made me too brain dead to enjoy/handle it in the evenings--and went to ragged flannels for months. But, then I knew I needed to finish it, especially after all the time and money spent on the fabric!

    When I picked it up from the quilters--I noticed mistakes! Ugh! Some of the 4 patch squares are turned. Good grief! How does that happen when I triple check? Sigh--it adds character, right? :wink: Oh well, my quilter wanted to buy it and was relieved to hear it was a keeper. :D

    That looks like an awful lot of work. VERY WELL DONE. What size is it?I thought I was the only one that was never satisfied that I've never done an entire quilt "perfectly". I suppose only we know what's not perfect about them.

    Hi, I was sitting looking at TV this afternoon and wondering what I wanted to post as my picture. Decided that the house in a center of a log cabin quilt would be a good quilt to show. But you are using it already for your posting picture. Isn't that a great quilt.

    jacquemoe, it's about 90 x 90--whew! That's the second biggest I've made. One log cabin was 105 by 105.

    Loretta, it's called "Garden Lane" and it's by Patch Works studio.

    Blue Bell--I think you mean jacquemoe's gorgeous avatar--I've been drooling over it. :D

    And you all are absolutely right--it was A LOT of work!! :!: :wink:

    When I got the whole body done--without the border. I told my 17 year old daughter I was thinking about just leaving that sucker OFF--no one would ever know. But, she was in a silly mood and said "Mom! It's called 'Garden Lane' and there are little people going to be walking on it and if the border is not there--they will all fall off!" Then she added "If you call yourself a professional quilter--you must add the border!"

    I added the border--no simple task--it extended the pattern. Good grief. :shock:
