    First the TIC.

    The plain squares are done!

    Nine of the squared blocks were done weeks ago, and here's what I got done today. There are 36 seams to pin in every blasted square! NOT that I'm counting! :|

    WFLC next....

    What's done....

    Love, love, love your green floral! It feels peaceful.
    It's so fun seeing how blocks change their look in different layouts.

    The first picture is of the squares in the watercolor floral that's for sale, the second photo is of four squares I finished today. (I needed to stop pinning for a bit!:roll: )

    I love the new design, but I'm getting very critical. I think all the beige only strips will be coming out of the light side options. I like all greenish better. There's one spot I goofed and didn't get light to darker... but these can be practice squares. Each block is decided on individually.

    Old squares and new pattern idea

    I agree b.zang! I saw this fabric in a Mennonite shop twice before I succumbed. I adored it every time, but was trying to use self control. :lol: It's so calming. The pattern calls for 60+ squares, but I think I'll make a lap quilt for me and use the rest for baby quilts.

    I love that green floral! That Triple Irish Chain will be awesome! I like your idea about the greens for the lights on the log cabin. I will try that when I do mine (someday). Sometimes when I see similar quilts, the beiges look dirty to me.

    katier--I wanted the lights to emulate the ground between gardens, so the beige works for that, but it looks a big off with the greens. It doesn't blend as well. The one with green leaves and hues of beige are okay, I think. Finding fabrics for the lights in this quilt has been tough! I used up all my favorites in the last one and I can't find good replacements.

    Loving Isabella--yes--that photo was taken May 2, I believe. It's of Chloe and her colt, Tucker. I'm headed out now to give them more hay for the night. ;)

    I have to say that I am partial to the first one! I think it is going to be STUNNING!

    I have a thing for blue and green together. That was my first quilt in a log cabin.
