I did try draping it on the old tree stump in the yard but it was far enough from the house for the wind to catch. I really didn't feel like running down in the cow pasture if the wind blew it away.
I used 2" strips for the log cabin blocks, I also used some 2-1/2" strips then trimmed the blocks to size.
The flimsy measures 90" by 99" and will be long arm quilted. But of course there's a waiting list for long arm quilting but I'm on the list!
This will never be my favorite quilt but I like it and I think I've really improved the look from the original panel.
Readers seemed to enjoy reading my last post about life here on the farm. Some mentioned they passed it onto their grandchildren to enjoy.
Here is a link to my old blog, Gretchen's Little Corner which was through Word Press. I talked a lot about the farm on the old blog. If you look through the categories listed on the right hand side, you see the topic of the post. Children (adults too) might enjoy reading and learning about farm life. The most important thing to remember though, this is just a snippet of farm life on OUR farm. Every farm is different and our farm is not as modern as most.
