    Here are two quilts I am working on, a log cabin and weaver fever. Both are pretty wrinkled from being put up for so long, they do lay flat :-) . I need motivation and decided Id post them here for everyone to see. I cant get the colors to show up the way I want but they are close. Just ignore all those threads, I dont clip em till all the blocks are put together. In the log cabin, can you spot the not one, but TWO mistakes? I didnt even see them until I was looking at the pics!! Need to re-do those. :oops: There will also be appliqued stars in the center of each light colored cabin., with a piano key border made from the block scraps.

    They are both lovely, esp the log cabin, I do intend to make one soon.
    Your colour choice is great.

    Both are pretty but I really like the colors in the log cabin. It took me a little while to find the second mistake. I don't think I would have seen it if you hadn't told us there was two mistakes. :lol:

    Both are very nice. I especially like the weaver fever one. I have never seen this pattern before and like it.

    Glad you pulled them out to show us. Love the weaver fever. Did a queen size one about 10 yrs. ago for a fund raiser for DD close up trip. Also your log cabin has great scrap colors. You should be so proud! thanks for sharing.

    Both are beautiful! I'm working on a log cabin now, debating how I'm going to arrange the blocks. I think you may have decided that for me!

    if i had a dollar for every time i make a mistake like that (which is several times in every single quilt i've ever made :lol: ) i could retire next week.

    Both are gorgeous. My first ever quilt was a log cabin and I think it is still my favorite pattern to this day. I have never seen a weaver fever and I love it. It looks really hard!!! Is it???

    Now that you have shown us your WIPs we are going to be expecting some progress pics.....so get to sewing, girl!

    They are both beautiful. I see what you call mistakes, I call them quilt personality.
