I picked up this fantastic black & white stripe for my B&W Log Cabin Quilt.
The top is done with the exception of 2 borders (solid red & solid black). I need to determine if I have enough backing material before I can add the borders.
I know the right thing to do is to cut it on the bias so it winds its way around the quilt, but I’ve never done that before, so I’m a wee bit nervous about screwing it up!
Linking up to Molli Sparkles: Sunday Stash again today.
I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler').
I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!).
This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI!

That black and white binding is hard to look at! It will looks so cool around your log cabin quilt. I am sure that you can cut on the bias binding!!
I love that striped fabric! Nice find!
Love your new stripes! I agree that it is hard on the eyeballs when it’s still yardage. But it looks fabulous for binding. I just used this yesterday on a baby quilt and did not cut on the bias. Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with yours!
