log cabin

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I have no finish to share today, so I'll show you this work in progress instead. I'm remaking my rainbow log cabin quilt, only not wonky this time (for pattern writing purposes). It's been awhile since I've put myself through a last minute marathon sewing session. It's kind of fun and kind of nerve wracking all at once. House showings thrown into the mix add a new level of crazy, but I'll take it! (I'm soooooooo anxious to sell. this. house.)

Anyway, I'm glad that the quilt is finally to this point. Only borders and finishing to go! I LOVE how it looks like stained glass in the window.

How about you? Any finishes to share? Please link up! Thanks for joining me and happy Friday!

Our house has been on the market since last July, I am so sick of showings! I just want someone to buy it already, sheesh!! We have a big mountain house though, so I know spring and early summer is the best time to show/sell. Still frustrating! I hope your house sells faster than ours. The quilt is beautiful! Makes me want to get out my scraps and get making more log cabin blocks!

I'm still trying to recover from my recent marathon last minute quilting frenzy - good luck with the house.

{good luck} on selling your house!! Hope all is going well, so you can move to your next destination! I love log cabin design quilts and love your colorful rainbow colors. I am again, admire the purple prints you have here.. I just purchased the {Sunday Morning Quilts} book the other day! I am loving all the projects in this book. My most attempt to make is reading through the way your sort the scraps and how you play with them. I plan to share this book in my blog when my other books arrive here. This week, I finally have a finish project to share. It is a scrappy patchwork zippered pouch! happy weekending~
