And it's a flimsy!

Not much sewing this week, not much time to read blogs or reply to all your sweet comments either... I'm sorry about that! and I hope to be able to do some catching up this weekend. I started this afternoon by stitching the borders to my blue and white SBS swap quilt top - it is now officially a flimsy:

I'm rather pleased with the effect of the log cabin blocks! Now I have to piece together the back, using the last one of my blocks, the siggie squares from some of the other swappers and left over fabrics :o)

Wishing everyone a great quilty weekend!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Dear AnneIda, You have captured the blue and white beautifully!! The blocks just shine! I so want to copy your setting so that I can have the same here in the states! Would you mind?
Hugs.

And a gorgeous flimsy it is! I love the different blues and the log cabin border really sets off the blocks very nicely. WTG

I am so impressed with the way the log cabin border compliments the blocks and echoes the cream in your setting triangles. It's really beautiful. Did you say where this one is going to live when it's done? (my house would be good LOL)

Wow! What a lovely quilt. This may just be the inspiration I need to start my own SBS quilt. I've been resisting for such a long time.
I just love the blue - and the log cabin border is the perfect finish.

Just stunning!!!

Dette var kjempefint sammensatt. Lett at det kan bli rotete med så mange forskjellige blokker - men her har du bevist at med riktig valg av farger og sammensetning kan det bli kjempflott! Bærre lekkert!
