More snow pictures, and Log Cabin border
Now, look in his back pocket -- do you see why I take good quilts off the bed? That is the most humongous screwdriver - some of us have been talking about such dangerous items left in back pockets! (used to unclog the chute) Sometimes it stays in that pocket, when he returns to the house and sits on the bed/quilt to remove heavy snow gear!
I've taken this photo (below) several times, a drift that shows up close to the
neighbor, but I just LOVE all the LINES!
My Log Cabin border (below) HAD to include the cornerstones. They MUST meet correctly at the corner, and at the center of each side -- time for graph paper. Centers of each border may be 'off' but they must be symmetrical. I'm sewing chunks at a time, and spreading the colors out somewhat evenly among the four sides. Close up my eye sees the individual strips, but from a distance, all those colors blend to look like woodsy shadows - my intention. I LIKE it, but it's taking a long time to put together - those are one inch strips. The quilting will further help to blend the strips.
