The Farmer's Wife blocks are finished...yeah! So now I have loads of 30's repro scraps. Well, I just can't throw them away so I thought I'd use them up by making another quilt. I cut tons of them up into 2-1/2" squares and started this:

I'm still playing with the setting of my blocks but at least they're all made. Took a ride to my daughters house and she came up with the two designs here. She said out of these two she would pick the second. I lean towards the first. Al says of the two he likes the first best....BUT since we paid for the art degree daughter had, I should probably listen to her. Hmmmmm....
Wonder if I should just toss a coin. Remind me never to make log cabin blocks again...to many decisions.....

Al and I went up to Suttons Bay today to shop and found a new shop had opened this year....my favorite kind of store, a quilt shop called Cherry Country Quilts! I met the owner and her husband...both very nice people. She has a nice variety of fabrics...some 30's reproductions,some batiks, a nice assortment of modern fabrics, some Kaffe and some civil war. I bought some of the Kaffe for a border on my Kaffe log cabin. I have 28 more blocks to make and then I'll start the borders.

I made a few more blocks last night and came up with a winner, I think. Taking everyone's opinion into consideration, I decided to do the barn raising setting (setting one from the previous post)...well, I started laying it out wrong...lights to the middle instead of darks....and that took me here. I like it. Thanks ladies...you all always help! Now to make about 45 more blocks:)
