Log Cabin Loonies runner

 This is To-Do Tuesday #53  I will be linking with Chris Knits

I decided to just do 10 blocks of the log cabin blocks and turn it into a runner for our front foyer table.  AND I decided to change every other block and make a different arrangement.

Here are my blocks in the way Julie of JulieKQuilts had her blocks arranged

Today is a rainy day and we don't get those very often.  It has been gorgeous weather for several weeks and here is a photo I took several weeks ago on our patio.
AND here is a surprise I saw on our patio one day looking out from my sewing room

I have been making bread with the recipe from the book Artison Bread in Five Minutes a Day.  It is so good and it is nice to have with an evening meal or to have with homemade vegetable soup for lunch.  I make vegetable soup and freeze part of it so I always have some on hand.  The bread recipe makes 4 loaves...crusty outside and chewy inside.....delicious!!  So now I have bread dough in the refrigerator ready to make several times a week.

In my last blog post I talked about the quilt along coming up with Jan Krentz
Here is a link to that post 

Here is a photo of the pattern pack for the Spiral Lone Star quilt along

She has a FB group and will be doing FB Live every Friday for 7 weeks starting this Friday.  

For those interested in making the quilt........the name of the FB group is
Spiral Lone Star Quilt Along with Jan Krentz

In my last post I showed photos of the start of making fun stuff using Jean Wells method from her book.  Here is the beginning piece I made............very easy and soooo fun!!!

Now to my list of things I want to do this coming week.....

This is the beginning of March Madness and I will be watching basketball games on TV so my list is short and sweet!

To-Do Tuesday week of March 2 through March 8:
  1. Log Cabin Loonies runner.....decide how to quilt it and start quilting
  2. Do more from Jean Wells book
  3. Watch the first FB Live on Friday of Jan Krentz and the Spiral Lone Star Quilt 
Smiles and hugs....Caryl

  2. Your runner looks super. That Spiral Log Cabin looks amazing (and hard!) I hope you have a great time making it. And show us your progress!

    1. Thanks Bonnie! The Spiral Lone Star requires accurate piecing and cutting and sewing.....yikes....yes....could be scary hard to do!!
