    Purple log cabin

    Here are two pictures of the purple Log Cabin top that I just finished. Many of you helped me with border selection and fabric selection. I thank you!

    The first picture is of the top, and the second is of the top on my design wall while my quilt inspector and I were deciding on borders.

    Thanks for looking.

    That looks good - the wider purple with that smaller red border was the right way to go!

    The inner border finished at 2 inches, and the outer border will finish at 5 1/2, unless I make it just a bit smaller.

    The quilt inspector looks happy with your choice as so do I.

    Great job, love purple and reds together. Now that its together and that hard decision is finished, how are you going to quilt it or have it quilted? Another hard decision to make? Non-quilters don't realize how much stress we go thru making all those decisions from the pattern, fabric choices, layout, borders/sashings and finally the quilting. No wonder I now have grey in my hair. Thankfully I like my grey as it came out streaked as if I frosted it. I worked hard for every one of those grey hairs too..........:-)
