    Last minute difficulties

    Every year I tend to quilt up to the last minute before my guild's quilt show. I also make a placemat for the potluck we have honoring out judge. Usually I do that well in advance. My plan was to do it today for the judging tomorrow. I could not sleep last night so I started it at 4:30 AM. Not a good plan. Errors like crazy, even though the pattern (MY own) is the same as I use every year. PHOOEY! I just started next year's placemat, having learned my lesson.

    We are Log Cabin Quilters, which is the reason for the pattern.

    BTW, I have all but 3 of my Christmas quilts completed. I generally don't procrastinate, merely take on too many total projects.

    Never would have thought of making a log cabin block look like a cabin. Love the bears in the "windows".

    It's super creative! I never would have thought to use a Log Cabin block as a house either but I love it! And I'm super impressed that you're almost ready for Christmas. So am I... Christmas 2001! LOL!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Love that block! Just perfect using a log cabin block to make a log cabin!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
