Quilty block.........

This was my last block to finish...............there is a lot of work in this one...........I was stressing about making the log cabin blocks...........so decided to make 2 at once............they both worked so I used both of them instead of the other blocks..........
4 sleeps..............

Keep Stitching............

4 sleeps is sounding a bit scary! Finished sewing the binding down this morning...now I'm sewing the ends in. Looking good for an ontime finish at this stage ;) I love your sewing block...really can't wait to see the finished quilt!

HI Chooky...log cabin is my favourite block, and I have never made one!! I'm doing the same as Susan and adding real buttons after quilting ;) Suze.

Nice variations...I am really liking your fabrics too. Nice and cheerful! Get that binding on girl...only a couple more sleeps. I cant wait to get mine back. I have already booked a date with my friend to help me whip on the binding...and hand out candy on Halloween night!
