Log Cabin Exploration
While I love doing the log cabin, it gets to a point where I get a little bored with just going back and forth... maybe bored isn't the word.... impatient for it to be done might be better. I knew I wanted it bigger, but I couldn't continue with the strips or I was going to go crazy... so I have decided to do a checked border to separate it from a larger border design that I have yet to decide upon. Just like a real quilt!
I was playing with idea of either flying geese border, or zig zag or maybe even dots! I love dots!
I used a strange version of intarsia or fair isle (sp?) style to do the checks. I kind of invented my own way of caring the spare color across and the back side looks pretty good.
