    Next act part two...

    Boy' what you ladies do here must be some kinda magic. every quilt I make has its own Screw-ups, well I sewn some strips togeather almost too many, then I started on the blocks. Never made a log cabin so figured I would do that. they started out nice in order, and then... well the pattern I was going for got all messed up so now I need to embroider more centers to go with what I have so I can color cordinate the logs. No problem I have plenty fabric. and can pull embroidery from enternet. well here is what I have so far. I refuse to make a UFO. I will get this right. I will not waste what I have but will make more to cordinate the olors how I want. The last picture I neet to take out the center and redo it. I put it in with the wrong side up.

    Just beautiful! Maybe some more pressing might help. Don't let this one be a Ufo.

    Luv the blues in these blocks. You encourage me to try a log cabin for myself. Never have done one. Please post picture when completed. This is really going to be pretty.

    Love the embroidery and the blue is so pretty. Just go slow and you'll be fine. I find that when I try to rush I make more mistakes makes me so mad at me. Good Luck. Sue

    You could sew nine blocks together and then cut the strips into a piano keys border. Use the extra block for a pillow. Beautiful blocks.

    There are no screw-ups in quilting - only design options!
