Quarter Log Cabin blocks. Its a free pattern.
Remember when I cut a big basket of 2.5" strips to take in the camper in May? This is one of the patterns I made with them. I have enough Quarter Log Cabin blocks for two boy size tops. I'm linking up with Quilting is more Fun than Housework. This pattern has NO BACKGROUND--perfect for making a Hug quilt.
It's been busy here. Last week we picked up a "new to us" camper--
I hope we like it, one more slide and a rear kitchen--I like a rear kitchen in a camper.
Last night I tried a new recipe--Plain Crumb Platz
I changed it a little, I added about 1/2 c. of mini chocolate chips sprinkled on the dough before the topping. I followed the directions but think I needed a bigger pan than the recipe calls for--the dough really puffed up but it has a tender crumb and very good.
And I'm inviting you to join an Irish Chain Challenge. We're doing this on Stashbusters and I'm inviting you to play along. Irish Chain quilts can be anything you want--vintage to a more classic look. This is the book I'm using--
Its a GREAT book--single, double, and triple Irish chains. Charts for using 1.5", 2.0", or 2.5" strips. Pressing directions. It breaks each size down for yardage or number of strips. All sizes of quilts too. Search for Irish Chain images--and prepare to be overwhelmed. Mine will be a triple, using a soft yellow background, and "mostly" scrappy. This is a quilt for ME.
Remember all those magazines and books I brought home from the guild's rummage sale? I have a small stack beside the bed for late night reading--
Best purchase ever!

Finish last six seams on Quarter Log Cabin

That will keep me busy. Have you put your Christmas decorations up? I'd like to put our tree up and find the Christmas quilts.
