Yet another week of wandering and playing and not really finishing - but planning for sure!
This is another practice block and was remarkably easy and fast. This is Ricky Tims' "Convergance" pattern and is made from four 15" blocks. This took three hours start to finish and has only 24 seams.
I want to make two more of these -- one in just two colors and another with a yard of the most gorgeous and colorful hand-dyed fabric I've ever seen. It's a generous gift from Ms LogCabinQuilts when she went to hear Ricky and I wanted to make sure I knew how the fabrics would be playing together before I cut into any more fabric. These are not-so-great fabrics that continue to multiply in the dark and may never disappear from my stash. I had planned to work on the two color version this week but haven't had the spirit to do it. So, I'll wait.
I think I'll make these log cabins my Olympic event for the next two weeks. You see an incredible organization on Ravelry with various knitting events that start when the opening ceremonies begin. I won't be quite so structured, but I'll work on them when I'm watching from my sewing room and we'll see where I am by August 9th when we leave on vacation. I'm sure I'll play in other areas -- based on the last two weeks anyway -- but I hope to concentrate on cutting and sewing this pile of free fabric!
What about you, is there an Olympic event in your future? Whatever the next two weeks bring, I hope it is peaceful and creative! Jan
