Next Step Done

The backing for the red and white quilt-a-long quilt is pieced and ready to go. Sorry about the picture...how do you all take such good pictures of large quilts? Anyway, I think it is visually interesting, but it doesn't distract from the city scene fabric. Time to press everything, trim threads and baste. Still haven't decided between hand and machine quilting. Can't linger over that decision too long. I need to keep moving on this one. My goal is to have the basting done tonight.

Like I don't have enough to do, I signed up for a log cabin challenge on Judy's blog. We're going to make log cabin blocks together. 2 every day...48 blocks in 24 days. Just have to make the blocks at this point. I have no idea what fabric...actually I have no idea what I was thinking, but I love log cabin blocks, so what could it hurt?

I really like how you pieced the back - good luck getting it done!! A log cabin challenge? I might have to check that one out.

I love the backing Jacquie! It's going to be beautiful. I think I'd go for hand quilting because you can be more creative with design. But, I suppose if you just want to get it done, machine is the way to go ... sorry, not much help, am I?

Just love the city scenes fabric!!! Where did you find it? I've not seen it in the quilt shops I've been in. So gorgeous.
