After taking in some tumbler blocks to my office and putting them up on the wall, I decided they did not look as good as I had hoped. So of course I did what any quilter would do, I decided to start another quilt. Since I'm working for an attorney, I immediately thought of Courthouse Steps. I've had so much fun making these blocks as my Plan B for my office. I took in a few last week, and I think they will be wonderful.
Since the colors were a good match, I'm using exactly the same fabrics as in the Tumbler quilt. I went thru my stash again and found a few more lights and darks as this pattern uses more lights.
As I know many of you will agree, there is just something about a log cabin quilt that gets me every time. I've never done a Courthouse Steps variation, so I'm quite excited.
It's so much fun to watch your blocks grow.
I'm up to 45 - I'm thinking the wallhanging needs to be at least 8 blocks square. When I get to 64 I'll sew some sets together and take them back in the office. The blocks will finish at 5", so I may need to make this 9 x 9.
Until then, I have this to look at. I'm kind of on visual overload, as these are some of my most favorite fabrics and colors. When it's all said and done, I may have a hard choice....... Of course, I could rotate them and end up being able to hang both :). Decisions, decisions....
Hope you've had a great weekend, I'm back to work tomorrow.
