    Borders looks so innocent--but dang--these took me over two hours to put on. I'm too careful I guess. :?

    I couldn't decide on a width for the first one--3" too narrow, 3.5" close, 4" too wide... so I cut 4.25" for a finished 3.75" Good grief. :roll: The second border was easier on me-it's cut at 2". Binding is cut--it'll be the green.

    Measures 84" square and man, this baby is square--the corners matched perfectly when I folded it up.
    Overall, I'm pleased.

    That's got to be one of the most beautiful log cabin quilts I've seen! You did a great job picking the colors and piecing it! :)

    That is beautiful. I'm now inspired to make another log cabin, but this time using those different sized logs to make the curves. Great work!

    Thanks!! :D :D

    I think I'll have my quilter copy the flower design, but curve the petals more--and do that over the whole quilt with a variegated pastel thread. But, she may a better idea. She loves to be creative.

    Now I have the Black and White Splash, A Walk Through the Park, and the Garden to take to her. My goal was to complete Kayaking on the Lake, and a Triple Irish Chain before school starts. But, yikes--this will be bigger than a spring vet bill to pay for all these. :shock: I can't take them until after the 9th--quilt show at Quail Summit.

    Wow barnbum!!
    You have every right to pat yourself on the back for this one. It is so very pretty and an watercolor art quilt all in the same place. Gee, I wish I could do something so nice as this one.

    barnbum, this is even better than before. It is just scrumptious. I reall ylike how you did the borders. Very nice

    Now, I am sure I am not alone in wanting to know how to make this. I would like to know if you think we could find a tut or where if anyplace we can get more info?

    If you ever build a house, it may be the first ever squared home. LOL wouldn't that be a first! :lol:

    Oh Barnbum, that is downright stunning. I love your fabric choices, and the way they go together is just amazing. Makes me itch to get your center to work in the IRR!!!
