Desert Log Cabin

Done! I purchased these fabrics specifically because they were NOT my style but decided I had to try something new and different. The jury is still out on whether I like it or not. I DO love the border.
The backing was a piece of totally not-me fabric found at a rummage sale, and wow - do I love it!!! All bright, light and airy - nothing I would ever purchase, much to my loss! There wasn't enough and another remnant was added.

I quilted each outside border differently, for the fun of it. The narrow inner border again was practice and if you guage your distance by the outside squares, the end result is spaced fairly well. I definitely DO like the free-form look.

The border was really inspired from Quiltville.com -- scrappy bargello blocks. If you made a few of the samples at her site, your brain would explode with ideas - !!!

This is another version of my "Rebuilt Log Cabin", and made with 2 inch (cut) strips, with 5 rounds. Quilted on my DSM.

Wow! Your quilting is getting so good! A different pattern in each border adds pizazz.

I can only see one Kaffe Fassett fabric in there. Am I missing something?

Your quilting is looking great.

You mention Kaffe Fassett fabrics. In the mid-90's Ron and I were sightseeing in Bath, England, on a very rainy day. We came upon a Kaffe Fassett shop selling his furniture and mosaics. I don't think it is still there. I couldn't find it on Google.
