Well, seems that un-stitching takes longer than stitching.  LOL  I have not even made it 1/3 of the way through this baby quilt.  I'll work on it while sitting downstairs with DH, and then take a break to come on upstairs.

   I would like to quilt this old log cabin,but have no idea what to do with it.  Any suggestions?  I didn't like the way my Baptist Fans templates worked.

Then, I'm working on this kit that didn't have the right fabrics with it.  I tried a print, but it does not work well with the black or the white.  So, that might just have to go in the back.  I like the shape of the round cup.  The square one is just not great.  Might make all round ones, but I need to find the right fabrics and figure out how many are going on this wall hanging.

A friend came by this morning with a van load of fabrics.  Some were really old.  There were some vintage fabrics and lots of double knit.  I helped her sort through and there are some almost done, so I'll put them together for a charity.  I decided to ask Sylvia of  Angel Cover Ministries if they could use the extra fabric, even if it was not cotton.  She said yes, so I need to take that out to her soon.  There is lots of it
I think I'll keep the grandmother's flower garden pieces and see if I can put it together.

I've been working on the school stuff and hope to have it ready to go this week.

I've always liked the way clamshells look on log cabins. If I was doing it by hand, I'd probably stitch in the center of each log forming squares or corkscrews. Looks like a great quilt.
