    Whew...Now I am getting to the fun part...

    Having only been primarily a baby quilt producer, I got spunky and bought this kit at Houston last year. My daughter was married back in Sept of '11 and loves log cabins. So I am working on this for her and DSIL wedding quilt. Oh my! all the little pieces and organization is truly needed. Discovered many things so far.....my 1/4 is all dependent on the music I am listening to, don't cut your strips while sitting down, they have a tendency to be about 1/4 over which relates to the former problem ( blame it on the music)...and starch is my best friend. Ready to start putting it together....will post again before it goes to the LAQ. Thanks for looking.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    So funny and true! The piecing of the quilt is my favorite phase. It looks stunning.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
