The new issue of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine arrived today. It contained the final installment of their mystery quilt, so as soon as possible after dinner I scrambled into the sewing room, pushed back the rows of the diamond log cabin and laid out all the pieces. I was on pins and needles whether it would work in my fabric choices.
There were a couple of surprises. The yellows aren't as prominent as I thought they would be. True, there will be an outside border of the yellow print and there's yellow in the center but it doesn't really shine out. The blues are a lot brighter than I figured and it makes the quilt darker. I guess it's OK.
This is a smaller quilt, 74 inches square, and I'm debating whether to try to add another border and enlarge it or just let it be what it is. I can put it on the foot of the bed or over the back of the couch. This quilt was a lot of work and I'm kind of on the fence about it. What do you think? I'll post an actual picture when it's completed but I have to box it up and finish that diamond log cabin first. The primary reason I wanted to take a picture was that with all the color substitutions I did I had a hard time correlating it with the instructions and figuring out how it went together.
