The Y2KQ repro

Well, it's coming right along.  I decided to reproduce my Y2K quilt in 1" squares (finished size).  I sew in blocks of 5x5 squares and sew 8 blocks together for each row.  There will be 10 rows total with only one row left to go.

Laying out the fabs is the slowest part. Stitching goes pretty fast.

Gotta keep sewin'!  I may get this done yet!

Sorry about the side-ways photo...sometimes my photos flip when I upload them.

In the small photo you can see that I've included my daughter in this quilt...that's what she looked like about 35 years ago!

Looking forward to getting this done and trying to figure out how to quilt it? Probably by machine...probably with a light batt.

The Limerick Log Cabin (in neutrals)

I got very ambitious during the past week and managed to piece the top from the Limerick Log Cabin pattern that we mentioned in the posts about the pillow cases.  Thanks to Laura for telling me about the magazine where the pillow case pattern was.  This was in the same issue and just happened to fit perfectly with some batiks I had just purchased (for no other reason than that I liked them).
The top is laying on the bed in our guest room while I figure out what I want to do about borders.  I think that one 2" of the swirly fabric and then a piano key using all the fabrics will probably be the way I'll go.  Just have to sit and look at it a bit longer.
