Worldwide Quilting Day--isn't that an amazing visual, folks all over the planet using needle and thread to create. I wanted to piece, so pulled out the box of finished Log Cabin Loonies blocks. I had saved a photo of a trial layout, and luckily had blocks already pinned in groups of ten. I started with 1.5" strips for my log cabins so they will finish at an odd size, 7.5".
This is the most blocks I could layout on my sewing room floor this direction, but since there were lots of log cabin blocks, I decided to add another row to each side to bring the top to 60" wide and 67" long. This pic was taken before I sewed skinny borders around the 6" finished modern churn dash blocks from Barb's (Fun with Barb) swap a few years ago. I was glad to find that job had been done when I opened the box.
The extra blocks on the end of each row complete the light diagonal stripes well.
Our daughter Elaine sent a photo of grandson Cove and me at the backyard family gathering last weekend, after he wanted to try Mimi's tea.
My sister and I went today to visit our Uncle Fred, who post-stroke has been moved to a nursing home for comfort care. He seemed to recognize us, but it was hard to tell, as he isn't able to talk. He was moving his head, right arm and leg.
