Wow! I can't believe what a difference a border can make on a quilt. I think it was just the perfect finish for this quilt. I am really excited to have this basted so I can quilt it and get it finished for our bed. Adam loves anything that looks like it fits in a log cabin, and he would decorate our entire condo with logs and dead animals if I let him. That's why I created this log cabinish pattern for the quilt. Since starting this, I have learned that not only does color matter, but the lightness and darkness matter just as much.
Although this is really Adam's style, after I finished, I really thought this was more of a fall/winter quilt than spring/summer, so I was thinking that at some point I would replace our current coverlet with a quilt for spring/summer too. Lo and behold, I saw a post on Craft Gossip for this challenge on The Last Piece.
Here's the gist
You have 2 months (almost, I am a couple days late)
You need to make a quilt top (you don't have to quilt it)
The quilt top needs to be for your bed
