This is where I was on Monday. The more I looked at the Courthouse Steps partial border, the less I liked it. I decided that it might be best to just keep things simple.
Ta da! I finally have the log cabin border done! It is a simple log cabin-style border, with two light sides and two darker sides. I think it gives the quilt some "breathing room" and kind of calms those crazy 9- patches, instead of getting too busy. And now this will work better with the Star border that is our challenge for August. I'm happy with this now. And I already have some ideas of where I want to go next!
This weekend is my DH's big art show out in the garden. He's been working like a slave to get everything ready, and tomorrow is set up. Hopefully we'll have good weather, not too hot and not rainy. We seem to be one or the other every year. The weather report looks good for not too hot, but we may have some showers. And I hope we get lots of customers! Cross your fingers for us!
Have a great weekend. I hope you have some time to be creative!
