Decision Made! Log Cabin Finished!

 Yep ... we all know who is really in charge here in dillydallydom!
 The most difficult part of making a log cabin quilt is choosing which layout!  Proof that we are destined to make several! 
 Here is the layout that Flicka liked best!
Because Mr. DillyDally is the recipient of this quilt, I let him choose the layout.  The "Barn Raising" layout was his favorite ... hmmm ... I wonder ...
 ... we all know about "peer pressure" ... I wonder if there is such a thing as "kitty pressure"? ;-) 
 While Flicka was supervising my piecing ...
 ... her tail was busy supervising my stacks of leader and enders!  Yep ... that tail often went wild and those 2 inch squares would get knocked around!  Rarely a quiet moment in the DillyDally sewing room!
 Eventually both borders were added and the quilt top is now hanging in QBee Lila's quilt shop!

My heart be still ... new Thimbleberries fabrics have arrived at Cordova Quilters' Hideout!  Gosh ... these spring colors are just what my heart needs to see during the current dark and dreary months of winter!  Yep ... I have a plan for these lovelies ... stay tuned!
In other big news ... we are finally able to tell that our days are getting longer!  The heavy cloud cover cleared late Tuesday ... and this was the sunset at 4:15!  Have a great weekend!
Do what you love. Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally


  1. I really liked Flicka's choice best, but Mr. DillyDally chose a great one too! I love the finished result. Looks wonderful! I am almost done with the GET IT DONE Projects for January. Only binding left to hand turn. I am trying to post photos to my blog, but am having trouble with the correct "choose file" window opening. I'll figure it out sooner tor later.
    Hope you have a wonderful evening at the Hideout!!

  2. Zoe and I visited your blog today to see what Flicka was doing. Zoe says that she wonders how many times Flicka is going to knock over the 2 inch square stacks. We love the quilt!

  3. Beautiful quilt! I love your idea of cheery fabrics to chase away gray days. I start to get cabin fever this time of year.

  4. I love that log cabin. The borders are perfect. Wonderful cooperation between you and Flicka.
