Log Cabin blocks all done

Well finally got all of my 6 1/2" log cabin blocks done for a quilt. I was needing to make 104 of them and 80 flying geese to make a quilt called double duty by mis rosie. I did these all in scraps of Kansas trouble fabrics. Will send some in to swap with other quilters and then once those are returned I'll put it all together.

Spent the most wonderful day on sat with some friends. Visited a quilt shop in columbus, Ohio called The Glass Thimble. It was a shop I visited a while back but the people there were kinda snobby, acted like it was a bother for them to wait on you, stuff every where, and kinda had the feeling of drab unbecoming. Well they sold the shop to some new owners this past fall. The new owners have done such a wonderful Job, Love the shop. It felt so clean, well organized, lite and airy. The gals working were oh so helpful & polite. Wonderful lighting and just gorgeous inside. Will definately return there. I found a quilt top I just fell in love with called home sweet home by blackbird designs, done up in robin egg blue, muted pinks, buttery yellows and lite tans. They were sold out of the book. So started searching on the internet~~~found the book & found out they have block of the month also, hhmmm but every place is filled up, gggrrrrrr. so this is going to be one of my projects to do up my own quilt and hopefully get it completed by the end of the year.~~~~~ I hope.~~~~
