So that got the juices going and I'm ready to sew. I have bought many books of the years and just flick thru them but rarely make anything from them. Today I decided to make something in reproductions. Seems an age since I used those fabrics. And I decided to make something from a book. First book I picked up was Judy Martins Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts and it took me all of 5 seconds to know which quilt I want to make. This lady makes the most amazing quilts. The whole book is filled with wonderful Extraordinary Quilts. So all excited I went to the cupboard and right in front was this - purchased who knows when.
But I don't really have enough browns. I want to make it brown and indigo and gold. Hmm, just thought maybe I make the centres in brown and the logs can be indigo and gold. Oww, maybe I do have enough fabric. But then will it be too much gold? I'm going to make a small one as it will take too long for a queen and besides I don't have the fabric. Just enough in this bundle for the smaller size.

So now I need to go back and rethink it all. Think I'll make some test blocks in some scrappy fabrics to see what I think. That will give me a taste while I make up my mind.
