Happy December!!

December, I won't lie.  I always love the first month of Winter (which I consider December not January).   I love the first snow, I love the brisk air and all the giving spirit.  By January 2 I usually come to my senses and can't wait to be done with the Winter.  But right now, on the first day of December I'm loving it!  Just a few things on the design was, design table, design frame.  I've got stuff all over!!  On the table a few less bags a few more connected logs and it's getting there.  On the frame the Kaffee Fassett tumbler (love all those bright colors) and on the wall 64 finished log cabin blocks (105 are still waiting their turn on the table).
105 blocks in progress
64 of the blocks for option 1 (my favorite)  - this will have have the star off center, just don't have the blocks yet
64 blocks of Option 2 (hubby favorite)

Kaffee Fassett Tumbler - will go great with the shot cotton log cabin
I did have a quick finish.  The frame was empty and I had a panel quilt ready to go.  Couple of hours later, and I had a cute little finish.  I think the panel is call Josie's Aquarium.  I just added the 3 borders and it was ready to go.

  4. Hard call on the log cabins but it's going to be great whichever way you choose. Love the Fassett top as well - great colours again.

  5. I agree... both log cabin layouts are great. I love the "shadowing" of the darker sides of the blocks. I LOVE your panel you quilted. How cute is that! And I am a huge Kaffe fan, so your tumbler quilt is awesome. :)

  16. that's a cool log cabin pattern.
    I like making log cabin blocks too....every time I see that someone is as I go through the blogs in the linky it sure makes me want to make more....like I don't already have way too many projects in the works already!

  17. You have accomplished a lot, and the panel looks great!
    Your log cabin blocks are beautiful. Both layouts are interesting...though I'm partial to the one your husband prefers (sorry!). My brain has to work a bit harder to see the lights and shadows dance, and I guess I like a challenge. :-)
