Lasagna and Log Cabin

Hi There!

Friday after work, I added the 2 borders on my Baby Blue Bow Tie Quilt and quickly pulled out a jelly roll, to do a Baby Lasagna Quilt.

My first mistake? I didn't sew the strips on the 45 degree diagonal. After I had done many, MANY miles of sewing these strips, Gilbert noticed that I had not pieced them on the diagonal.


Second mistake? I noticed that there were too many repeats in my jelly roll.

Sooooooo, since I had to re-do all the strip sewing, I decided to go into my "Fabric Cave" again, and pull out all my lime greens, funky blues and a few yellows... so that I would have a good assortment of colored strips.

Here's a picture of the beginning of my lasagna quilt.

By 1 p.m. today, I had finished my Baby Lasagna Quilt.

It'll look 100 times better once Gilbert and Bertha have worked their magic on this one. *grin*

Third mistake of the day?

I re-read the instructions on that Christmas Log Cabin quilt..... the complete block placement, in the magazine, would have fit a KING SIZE quilt. The client that is asking for this quilt and will hopefully like it, wanted a DOUBLE SIZE quilt.

I had cut too many strips....

*slaps her forehead*

Well, I'll either make a table topper with the extra strips or .... whatever.

We shall see...

Snapped a picture when I had 3 blocks pieced.

Snapped another one when I had 6 blocks finished.

Now, here's where Gilbert said, "Supper's ready."

Otherwise, I'd probably STILL be at these cute blocks!


I managed to pump out 8 blocks.

Back to work tomorrow.

It was a REAL hot day today. Unfortunately, we weren't able to go anywhere. Gilbert and Bertha were busy and well..... I didn't mind. It was cool in the house and I was able to sew!


Have a nice week!
