What I've been working on

I've been piecing quilts for a sort of service project for a family in our homeschool community. I think this one will be getting 2 more borders. Figuring out how to do those angled segments was quite the brain exercise.

And, another scrappy log cabin project. I like squares. This quilt will have some strips of the balloon fabric, same as the blue quilt above, in between the log cabin rows and those scrappy square rows. Here are my dimensions for the 12" scrappy log cabin block: center square is 3.5" cut, 3" finished, and log strips are 2" cut, 1.5" finished. You can read more about scrappy log cabin blocks here. I've done them in 9-inch and 12-inch sizes now.

Something I've been thinking about for a day or 2 now is making a quilt (or 3) to submit to this show. I have one idea that I'm going to start on for sure. I don't feel like I do really "modern" quilting, at least not as I see on all the trendy craft blogs, but I'm going to see what I can come up with.

Also, I have another baby quilt I need to make for a nephew who was born in August. And... I have another pregnant sibling so that'll be one more baby quilt to do by the middle of next year.
