    That is beautiful! I love the log cabin pattern and I love your colors. I just ordered the Accuquilt Go along with a couple dies and can't wait for it to arrive. Love HSN easy payment plan.

    I love the decorative stitching you did along the outside of each block, makes me think of the crazy quilt tradition. The stitches were especially effective I think because you used smaller strips. I love making log cabin quilts but the larger the strips the less effective I think the design and level of sophistication. I think your marathon of sewing is amazing to finish so quickly. I generally use inch and a half strips and have other projects going as I will cut during daylight and sew at night watching television to keep things relaxed but moving along. I have never really used chain piecing and I should but am afraid I could turn strips the wrong way cuz if there is a way to make a mistake, I will make it.

    I love the colors and wonderful fabrics you used and I think your work is truly meticulous. Congratulations, I can't wait to see your finished quilt for your bed. Thank you

    That is great I love your colors! And a king size one in 2" strips would not take as long as you think !! Great job!

    Very nice! The King size would be beautiful too-just think of making several small ones like this and eventually you will have the king size. :>)
    This too shall pass.

    Even 1-1/2 inch strips would make a difference! And maybe that would satisfy him!
