Another project in process is this grey-black-white log cabin. So far there are forty-two 14" blocks.This layout of diagonal furrows pleases me, but these blocks are set aside for a day when I'll try another layout. It's nice to have all the black and white and grey logs put away for a while.
As I worked on the Rail Fence, I realized I have almost enough for a full-size Trip Around the World. So the strips are cut, just waiting to be sewn.
Here's the thing about these meaty peppered shot cottons - they feel great and have a nice weight. They are a dream to quilt because their weave is very open and looks good with my primitive sashiko quilting. I know I want to hand-quilt this Trip. I'm not sure about the Rail Fence.

|This Glam Clam was hand-pieced and hand-quilted. These curves almost made themselves.|
